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.

Full Text

1 When I became weary and tired of sin,
Then Jesus came into my heart;
He knocked at my door and I bade him come in,
Then Jesus came into my heart.

Refrain:
Yes, Jesus came into my heart!
Yes, Jesus came into my heart!
He bade all my doubtings and sorrows depart,
When Jesus came into my heart!

2 I longed to be pure and for holiness cried,
Then Jesus came into my heart;
He took out my sin when the blood was applied,
When Jesus came into my heart. [Refrain]

3 When friends I once trusted no longer proved true,
Then Jesus came into my heart;
Such sweet, holy friendship my soul never knew,
Till Jesus came into my heart. [Refrain]

4 Now life is a pleasure and blessing to live,
Since Jesus came into my heart;
My service for others I joyfully give,
Since Jesus came into my heart. [Refrain]
