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 No longer delay your returning,
No longer the evil pursue,
God’s spirit is patiently striving,
And Jesus is looking for you.

Your Saviour is looking for you brother,
Your Saviour is looking for you;
O, give him your heart, ere his spirit depart!
Yes, Jesus is looking for you.

2 Your evil companions will lead you
Away from the good and the true;
But follow the voice that is calling—
Your Saviour is looking for you. [Refrain]

3 So patiently Jesus is calling,
And longing your joys to renew,
O answer his gentle entreaty
While still he is looking for you [Refrain]
