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.

Representative Text

1 Jesus is lovingly calling,
Calling for you and for me;
Tho’ we have wander’d in darkness,
He from all sin will set free;
Long has He waited our turning,
Straying afar from the fold,
Come, and no longer reject Him,
He will give blessings untold.

Calling for thee,
Calling for me;
Sinner, Oh, come and seek pardon,
Offer’d so boundless and free.

2 Jesus is lovingly calling,
Careless one, hear His sweet voice:
“I will abundantly pardon,
Come now, and make me thy choice;”
What shall thou gain by delaying?
Nothing but grief and despair;
Cast all thy burdens upon Him,
Thou shall be comforted there. [Refrain]

3 Jesus is lovingly calling,
Calling the weary to rest;
Soon we shall cross the dark river,
Soon we’ll be safe with the blest;
If we’ve been true to the Master,
Seeking His will to obey,
We shall inherit a mansion,
He will not turn us away. [Refrain]
