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 Open your heart to Jesus;
His peace you can always find;
In moments of deepest affliction,
In ev’ry distress of mind.

Refrain:
Open your heart to Jesus,
To Jesus your dearest Friend;
No ear is more heeding;
No love is more pleading;
Open your heart to Jesus.

2 Open your heart to Jesus;
When thirsting upon the way,
His presence shall fill thee with gladness,
His blessing shall crown each day. [Refrain]

3 Open your heart to Jesus,
When fainting upon the road;
In times of temptation and trial,
Oh, open your heart to God. [Refrain]

4 Open your heart to Jesus,
For so He has done to thee;
‘Twas opened in love and in pity;
‘Twas opened on Calvary. [Refrain]
