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

Full Text

1. The Shepherd stands at the open door—
He stands and waits for thee;
He’s calling now—has called before—
Oh, listen to His plea.

Refrain
He’s calling, calling, calling you,
Turn now, today, make Him your choice;
He’s calling, calling calling you,
Oh, listen to the Shepherd’s voice.

2. He’s waiting at the outer gate—
The gate of the open fold;
Why linger then or hesitate?
His love cannot be told. [Refrain]

3. Yield Him your hand, and heart and love,
Obey the Shepherd’s call;
Be numbered in that fold above,
Give Him your life, your all. [Refrain]
