Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 Room enough at Calv’ry ‘neath the crimson flow!
At the cross of Jesus humbly bending low,
Others find salvation, from their burdens free,
Still the loving Spirit calls for thee.

Room enough, room enough, room enough for all;
Room for ev’ry soul who heeds the gospel call;
Come while mercy lingers,
Come while grace is free;
Room enough for ev’ry one, and room for thee.

2 Room enough for service in the vineyard wide,
Work to do for Jesus—needful pow’r supplied;
In the nearest duty, in the daily care
Find a mission, find a blessing there. [Refrain]

3 Room enough in glory, when the work is done,
At the marriage supper of the royal Son;
In the shining mansions by the crystal sea,
Room for all, and room enough for thee. [Refrain]
