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 Will you open the door of your heart tonight?
Outside Jesus patiently stands;
He is graciously waiting, how can you Him slight?
He's knocking with nail-pierced hands.

Refrain:
Just open the door of your heart tonight,
For Jesus now seeks you to win;
He is waiting outside,
Swing the door open wide,
And gladly He'll enter in.

2 Will you open the door of your heart tonight?
Oh, soul, will you longer delay?
When the Saviour can free you from sin's awful blight,
There's danger and death in your way. [Refrain]

3 Will you open the door of your heart tonight?
God's Spirit is striving within;
He may never again with your stubborn will fight,
But leave you to perish in sin. [Refrain]

4 Will you open the door of your heart tonight?
Do not send the dear Saviour away;
Lest He leave you for ever condemn'd in God's sight,
On the awful reckoning day. [Refrain]
