Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

1 Room for my Saviour here,
Heart, open wide thy door!
Hence, unbelief, and doubt, and fear,
Hence, and return no more.

Come in, come in,
My Lord, come int.

2 Oh, enter, gracious Lord,
If thou canst stoop so low,
Come in, and bid each guest abhorred
Forth from thy temple go. [Refrain]

3 Come in and keep thy feast,
And let me feast with thee;
For on thy sacred pledge I rest
That thou wilt sup with me. [Refrain]

4 No crumb have I, my Lord,
The feast must all be thine;
Thine are the viands of the board,
And thine the hallowed wine. [Refrain]

4 And I shall feast with thee,
And thou with me this day;
And e’en at eventide with me
Thou wilt prolong thy stay. [Refrain]

5 Nor yet at eventide
Wilt thou from me depart,
Eternity shall not divide
My Saviour from my heart! [Refrain]
