Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

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

Representative Text

1 Do you know the blessed Saviour’s at the door?
That He lingers there to bless you more and more?
Will you not invite Him in,
And His fellowship begin?
He is waiting, knocking, calling at the door.

He is waiting, He is knocking at the door,
He is waiting, He is knocking at the door,
He is waiting, He is knocking at the door,
He is waiting, He is knocking at the door.

2 Do no keep Him longer waiting at the door,
Hear Him knocking, calling louder than before.
Bid Him welcome now within,
Turn away from ev’ry sin,
He will enter and the feast be evermore. [Refrain]

3 Will you close your heart against Him at the door?
Will He not be all you need for evermore?
He will take away your pride,
Be your never-failing guide,
To the mansions where the blessed ones adore. [Refrain]

4 O, to think that Jesus waits outside the door,
He may leave you to return, no nevermore.
Leave you hopeless and alone,
With a heart as hard as stone,
Haste to hear Him now and open wide the door. [Refrain]
