We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Representative Text

1 Jesus is calling, lovingly calling,
Moments are wasting and the harvest is wide;
Many are waiting, many are idle,
Many are halting, and awaiting the tide.

Jesus is calling, so lovingly calling,
Enter the field, for there’s plenty to do,
Take up the cross, and, no longer delaying,
Enter the service, be valiant and true.

2 Jesus is calling, lovingly calling,
Gather the jewels that in plenty are found;
Tell the glad story, tell it with gladness,
Until the world shall with His glory resound. [Refrain]

3 Jesus is calling, patiently calling,
Enter the field, joyfully singing His love;
Comfort the weak ones, rescue the wand’rer,
Tell the glad story of the mansions above. [Refrain]
