Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

Representative Text

1 In the silent hours of darkness,
When the world is hushed and still,
Comes the Savior, gently knocking,
Till His locks the dewdrops fill.

Oh, for grace to listen to Him,
Oh, for room within my heart;
Oh, for love to bid Him enter,
Enter never to depart.

2 Listen, O my soul, with wonder,
That the Savior comes to thee,
Ever knocking, ever waiting,
Waiting what thy will shall be. [Refrain]

3 Come and enter, precious Savior,
Come, dear Father, with the Son,
Come, Thou ever loving Spirit,
Come, Thou Holy Three in One. [Refrain]
