Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.

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.

Who is there longing

Full Text

1. Who is there longing for something today,
Something the world cannot take away?
Who is there striving for rest and for peace?
Who from all sin is desiring release?

Listen, He’s calling, Come unto Me!
Listen, the Savior is calling,
Come unto Me and be saved!

2. Who is there walking in darkness of night?
Who is there longing for glimmers of light?
Who is there troubled by doubts and by fears?
Who is there blinded by fast falling tears? [Refrain]

3. Who is there out on the mountain of sin,
Stumbling along with no shelter to win?
Who is there moaning in awful despair,
Hopeless and aimless with no thought of prayer? [Refrain]

4. Oh, to be free from the bondage of sin!
Oh, to be sure that a crown you might win!
Oh, to be saved to the uttermost now!
Come, then, to Jesus, and joyfully bow! [Refrain]
