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.
1 This world is full of sickness and sorrow,
Full of woe, temptation, and sin;
Heavenly gates are standing wide open—
Standing wide open for you to come in.
Will you come in? will you come in?
Yield to the voice that will guide safely in;
Jesus is standing, receiving, and handing;
Calling for sinners, O will you come in?
2 Our Lord on earth did feel with deep pity,
Felt for souls fast falling in sin,
Many He raised out of deep degradation,
Still He cries loudly, O will you come in? [Refrain]
3 The vile did stare, oppose, and reject Him,
Blind and lame sang praises to Him.
Still He points to the gate of salvation,
Standing wide open for you to come in. [Refrain]
4 The gates of Heav’n where Jesus is standing,
Waiting there for us to come in,
Are open wide for them with salvation,
Yet none can enter unless without sin. [Refrain]Source: Boundless Love: for Sunday Schools and Gospel Meetings #208
