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 Open wide thy heart today
At Jesus’ call;
Bid Him enter and abide,
Thy life, thy all.

Only trust Him, and be still;
Let Him work in thee His will,
For the heart that’s opened wide
His love shall fill.

2 Open wide thy heart today
To Him who pleads;
Heed His voice, and follow on
Where’er He leads. [Refrain]

3 Open wide thy heart today
To love divine,
And a wealth of grace untold
May all be thine. [Refrain]

4 Open wide thy heart today
With all its need,
And the hunger of the soul
His love will feed. [Refrain]
