Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

911. Open Wide the Door

1 Sinner, hark! the Savior’s calling,
Pleading o’er and o’er;
Hear those tender accents falling:
“Open wide the door.”

Refrain:
Humbly bow with broken spirit,
Heaven’s mercy to implore;
Jesus calls, O sinner, hear it!
Open wide the door.

2 Weary sinner, lost and sighing,
Hear the call once more;
See the Savior bleeding, dying;
Open wide the door. [Refrain]

3 Wake, the joy fore’er increasing,
On that blissful shore;
Give thyself in Jesus’ keeping;
Open wide the door. [Refrain]

4 Hear the gospel message given,
Bar it out no more;
Christ will speak thy sins forgiven;
Open wide the door. [Refrain]
