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

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]
