We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 ‘Tis the Savior who would claim
Entrance to your heart:
Will you send your Lord away?—
Will you say?—“Depart!”
He will all your trials share,
He will cleanse you from all sin.

‘Tis your Savior, ‘tis your Savior standing there”
Haste, and let Him in! Let Him in!
Lest He turn away, let Him in!

2 No one like the Savior knocks
At the sinner’s door;
‘Tis no stranger that implores,—
He has knocked before;
He has often sought your heart:
Shall He cleanse it now from sin? [Refrain]

3 Oh, how can you bid Him wait
Till another day,
When already Jesus weeps
At the long delay?
‘Twas for you that Jesus died,
And ‘tis you He longs to win. [Refrain]
