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.

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 Don’t keep Jesus waiting,
Waiting evermore,
Hark! He knocketh softly
At thy bosom’s door;
Haste that door to open,
Open, I implore.

2 Don’t keep Jesus waiting,
Waiting at the door,
How He suffered for thee,
All thy sins He bore;
Bid Him freely enter,
Bid Him, I implore.

3 Don’t keep Jesus waiting,
Friend He is and more,
As thy Savior loves thee,
None e’er loved before;
Do not turn Him from thee,
Do not, I implore.

4 Don’t keep Jesus waiting,
Till the day is o’er,
Sad, should Jesus leave thee,
Leave thee evermore;
Wide the door fling open,
Open, I implore.
