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.

Representative Text

1 Now Jesus knocks, O let Him in,
He’s standing at thy door;
Thy heart He’s seeking still to win
As oft He’s done before.

Let Jesus in, Let Jesus in,
Let Jesus in, poor soul;
Let Jesus in, His love alone
Can make the wounded whole.

2 Let Jesus in, there’s none but He,
Can give thee peace with God;
He died that sinners might go free,
He paid their debt with blood. [Refrain]

3 Let Jesus in, He’ll give thee rest,
Thou canst not find elsewhere;
With sin no longer be oppressed,
No longer burdens bear. [Refrain]

4 Let Jesus in, He pleads with thee,
In low sweet tones of love;
Thy dearest Friend, and Guide He’ll be
Unto the home above. [Refrain]
