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 Hymnary.org, 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.

1 I'm kneeling, Lord, at mercy's gate,
With trembling hope and fear;
I've waited long, and still I wait
Thy gracious word to hear.
Thy precious word has bid me seek
The joys thou hast in store;
O Lord, in mercy speak to me,
I'm kneeling at the door,
I'm kneeling at the door,
Kneeling at the door,
O Lord, in mercy speak to me,
I'm kneeling at the door.

2 None ever empty turned away,
Who truly sought thy face:
And I, my Saviour, come today,
To seek thy pardoning grace.
Thy precious blood is all my plea:
This can my soul restore;
O Lord, in mercy speak to me,
I'm kneeling at the door,
I'm kneeling at the door,
Kneeling at the door,
O Lord, in mercy speak to me,
I'm kneeling at the door.
