Dear Friend of Hymnary,

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.

1 Will you come to the feast?
Will you sup with the Lord?
He will welcome the least
To his bountiful board;
There’s enough and to spare, and right royal the fare,
Will you come, one and all, to the feast?

Refrain:
Will you come, will you come,
Will you come to the feast?
For the world there is room,
Lo! the King will preside, for each guest will provide,
Will you come, will you come to the feast?

2 Will you come and be fed
By your Saviour and Lord?
With our great King and head
Will you sit at the board?
He invites you today, dare you longer delay?
Is there one who will dare to say nay? [Refrain]

3 Open wide is the door
To the banqueting hall–
Are you hungry and poor?
There is food for you all;
Come and sup with the King, with our Prophet and Priest,
Come, oh, come, one and all, to the feast. [Refrain]
