We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 Hear you not the gentle sound
At your heart as Christ goes round?
Gently knocking at each door,
Knocking, knocking, ever more.

Knocking, knocking, at your heart’s door,
Knocking, knocking, evermore;
Gently knocking at your heart’s door,
Knocking, knocking, evermore.

2 Do not let Him knock in vain;
Now He knocks again, again;
If you’ll not undo the door,
He may leave to knock no more. [Refrain]

3 But if you will let Him in,
Heav’nly joys you’ll sup with Him;
He will take away your sin,
Holy pleasures place within. [Refrain]
