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 Hymnary.org, 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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 The Master is come, and calleth for thee,
He stands at the door of thy heart,
No friend so forgiving, so gentle as he,
Oh, say, wilt thou let him depart?

Refrain:
Patiently waiting, earnestly pleading,
Jesus, thy Saviour, knocks at thy heart,
Patiently waiting, earnestly pleading,
Jesus, thy Saviour, knocks at thy heart.

2 The Master has come, with blessings for thee,
Arise, and his message receive;
Thy ransom is purchased, thy pardon is free,
If thou wilt repent and believe. [Refrain]

3 The Master has come, and calleth thee now,
This moment what joy may be thine;
How tender that smile that illumines his brow,—
A pledge of his favor divine. [Refrain]

4 He waits for thee still, then haste with delight,
Oh, fly to the arms of His love,
Press on to that beautiful mansion of light,
Prepared in his kingdom above. [Refrain]
