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 tenderly calling for thee,
Calling for thee, yes, calling for thee;
Listen and hear Him say, "Follow thou Me,
Follow, yes, follow thou Me."

Jesus is calling today,
Jesus is calling today;
Jesus is calling today,
Calling, yes, calling today.

2 Jesus is tenderly calling thee now,
Calling thee now, yes, calling thee now;
Waiting for thee in submission to bow,
Calling, yes, calling just now. [Refrain]

3 Jesus is tenderly calling, O come!
Calling today, yes, calling today;
All who are weary and longing for home,
Jesus is calling today. [Refrain]
