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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Tidings, happy tidings,
Hark! hark! the sound!
Hear the joyful echo
Thro’ the world resound;
Christ the Lord proclaims them,
Hear and heed the call:
Come, ye starving ones that perish,
Room, room for all.

Whosoever asketh
Jesus will receive;
Whosoever thirsteth,
Jesus will relieve;
See the living waters,
Flowing full and free;
O the blessed whosoever,
That means me.

2 Tidings, happy tidings,
Hark! hark! they say,
Do not slight the warning,
Come, O come today;
Christ our loving Savior,
Still repeats the call—
Come, ye weary, heavy laden,
Room, room for all. [Refrain]

3 Tidings, happy tidings,
Hark! hark! again,
Rushing o’er the mountain,
Sweeping o’er the plain;
Onward goes the message,
‘Tis the Savior’s call:
Come, for everything is ready,
Room, room for all. [Refrain]
