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 Lo! Jesus patiently knocks at the door,
Knocks at thy heart, knocks at thy heart;
Open today and resist Him no more,
Lest He forever depart.

Refrain:
Knocking today, knocking today;
Jesus is knocking,
Is knocking for entrance today.

2 Open the door and say, Master, come in,
Come and abide, come and abide;
He will redeem thee and cleanse from all sin,
He will be with thee to guide. [Refrain]

3 Jesus stands waiting and pleads with thee still;
Open today, open today;
How canst thou treat the dear Savior so ill?
How canst thou turn Him away? [Refrain]

4 Open the door of thy heart and find rest,
Find it today, find it today;
Let Him but enter and thou shalt be blest;
Why wilt thou longer delay? [Refrain]
