Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Full Text

1 Open your heart to Jesus,
He’s calling, “Come home today;”
You will but wander farther
The longer you stay away.

Open your heart to Jesus;
Oh, give him a welcome there;
Open your heart to Jesus,
And richest of treasures share.

2 Open your heart to Jesus,
Op, open it now and wide;
Jesus is ever ready
To enter and there abide. [Refrain]

3 Open your heart to Jesus,
From wells of salvation drink;
Mercy’s to you extended,
Tho’ standing on ruin’s brink. [Refrain]

4 Open your heart to Jesus,
He’s waiting with open hand;
Fly for your life to Jesus,
The “Rock in a weary land.” [Refrain]
