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

May I come in

Representative 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?

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]
