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 Keep praying at the door,
And knocking while you pray,
Nor tremble, tho' the tempter's voice
Would fright your soul away.

Keep praying at the door,
Still praying at the door;
Tho' long the answer is delayed,
Keep praying at the door.

2 The Lord will surely come,
His promise cannot fail;
O knock, and pray, and plead, and call,
Thy prayer will yet prevail. [Refrain]

3 The door will open wide,
And thou shalt enter in,
And from the Holy One receive
A pardon for thy sin. [Refrain]
