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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 The Savior now is standing at the door,
He seeks to enter in,
And if you’ll heed His loving call today,
He’ll save you from all sin.

Jesus is calling, is calling, is calling,
Jesus is calling,
Open your heart’s door wide and let Him in.

2 Though long He’s stood and tarried there in vain,
In love He waits today,
O hear His precious gentle voice that calls,
And turn Him not away. [Refrain]

3 Just now admit this glorious heav’nly guest,
Why longer cling to sin?
Eternal life and joy He waits to give,
To those who let Him in. [Refrain]

4 O do not grieve Him longer by delay,
The door swing open wide,
Invite Him now to quickly enter in,
Forever to abide. [Refrain]
