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.

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.

Hear Ye Him

Representative Text

1 There is One speaking “as never man spake,”
Hear ye Him!
He pleads you a choice this moment to make,
Hear ye Him!

Hear ye Him!
Hear ye Him!
It is the Savior’s voice!
Today, today make Him thy choice.

2 There is One calling, “O give me thy heart,”
Hear ye Him!
Make room for that One lest He should depart,
Hear ye Him! [Refrain]

3 There is One bidding the weary to rest,
Hear ye Him!
With offers of comfort to the oppressed,
Hear ye Him! [Refrain]

4 There is One calling the blind to arise,
Hear ye Him!
To visions of joy He opens their eyes,
Hear ye Him! [Refrain]
