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, 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,

Full Text

1 Burdened sinner, there is mercy,
At the door of hope,
Knock, oh knock if e’er so gently,
And the door will ope.

Listen! listen! He is calling,
Hear His loving voice,
Hear His spirit gently pleading,
Make Him now your choice.

2 Jesus stands beside it waiting,
Just to hear you call,
And at once will listen gladly,
For He comes to all. [Refrain]

3 Always ready, He will listen,
To thy faintest call,
Always willing, He will pardon,
And forgive thee all. [Refrain]
