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 Would you be free from the burden of sin?
Let Jesus come into your heart.
Go in peace and blessing and joy have within,
Throw open the door of your heart.

Chorus:
Just now throw open the door,
He will rich blessing impart,
Just now his mercy implore,
Throw open the door of your heart.

2 If in temptation the vict'ry you'd win,
Let Jesus come into your heart.
All foes you'll conquer without and within,
Throw open the door of your heart. [Chorus]

3 Would you each day know of his keeping pow'r?
Let Jesus come into your heart.
In times of trouble he is a strong tow'r,
Throw open the door of your heart. [Chorus]

4 Would you his presence enjoy till the end?
Let Jesus come into your heart.
In the dark valley he'll prove a true Friend,
Throw open the door of your heart. [Chorus]
