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. Jesus is calling, calling, calling,
Jesus is calling today;
Why should I linger, linger, linger,
I will arise and away.

Refrain
They are so happy, happy, happy,
Who do their Savior obey;
Why should I linger, linger, linger?
I will arise and away.

2. Jesus is pleading, pleading, pleading,
Why should I wander in sin;
While to His glory, glory, glory,
Glad He would welcome me in. [Refrain]

3. Angels are watching, watching, watching,
Hoping that I will obey;
I will accept Him, love Him, serve Him,
Jesus, I’m coming today. [Refrain]

4. Jesus is waiting, waiting, waiting,
Open now standeth the door;
Soon the night falleth, falleth, falleth,
Closed are the gates evermore. [Refrain]
