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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 I am waiting at the portal;
Do not pass Me by!
Tho’ the cares of life are pressing,
Linger to receive a blessing,
Ere the night draws nigh.

Refrain:
At the portal, I am waiting,
I am waiting still for thee;
At the portal I am waiting,
Then come, O come to Me.

2 I am waiting at the portal;
Do I wait in vain?
Seeking only earthly pleasures
And rejecting heav’nly treasures
Do not bring thee gain. [Refrain]

3 I am waiting at the portal,
Patiently I wait;
In My Father’s name receiving
All who come to Me believing,
Ere it be too late. [Refrain]
