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.

Representative Text

1 Jesus, the Savior, is calling for thee,
"Come, heavy laden one, come unto me;
I will thy soul from its burdens set free"--
Jesus is calling for thee!

Refrain:
Jesus is calling, tenderly calling,
Jesus is calling, calling for thee;
Jesus is calling, tenderly calling,
Jesus is calling, calling for thee.

2 Ye who are wandering now far away,
Heed the blest message, why longer delay?
Why from His presence so long wilt thou stay?
Jesus is calling for thee! [Refrain]

3 Jesus still seeks thee afar from the fold,
Out on the mountain so dark and so cold;
Turn to Him now--in His arms He'll enfold--
Jesus is calling for thee! [Refrain]
