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

Full Text

1 I heard a sweet voice calling,
Calling all the day;
It filled my heart with longing,
I could not turn away;
It sounded clear above life’s din,
I am thy Lord, may I come in?

Refrain:
Come in my Lord, come in today,
And take away my load of sin;
No longer may I turn away,
O blessed Lord, come in, come in.

2 I heard a sweet voice pleading,
Pleading all the day;
It filled my heart with yearning,
I knew not what to say;
It sounded clear above my sin,
I died for thee, may I come in? [Refrain]

3 I heard a sweet voice whisper,
Whisper soft and low;
It filled my heart with gladness,
He said “I love you so,”
I gave my life thy love to win,
I am thy Lord, may I come in? [Refrain]
