Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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, 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]
