Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 Come now, from your slumber awaking,
And list to the voice of the Lord;
Above you His sunlight is breaking,
And o’er you His love is outpoured.

Refrain:
O come, come, come, come,
Come while the Spirit is calling,
O come to the Saviour today,
This may be your last invitation;
O come and no longer delay.

2 Find pardon and peace in believing,
And rest only saved ones can know;
The grace of assurance receiving,
And joy only He can bestow. [Refrain]

3 Then haste while the Saviour is waiting,
The call of the Gospel obey;
Give over your fruitless debating,
And kneel at His pierced feet today. [Refrain]

4 Today is the day of salvation,
Now enter the wide open door;
This may be your last invitation;
God’s Spirit may call you no more. [Refrain]
