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

31. Heavy laden with thy grief

Heavy laden with thy grief,
Do thy tears like raindrops flow?
Christ hath all thy sorrows borne,
Long ago.

See Him in the garden prone,
While He pours His soul to God;
Then He bore affliction keen,
And the rod.

Weary, laden with thy sin,
Dost thou bow beneath the load?
Cast the burden of thy woe,
On thy God.

See Him fainting by the way,
As He bears the ponderous tree;
Hear His weary spirit sigh,
All for thee.

Sad and doubting! lo, the sun
Shines upon a glorious day;
He is risen, come see the place
Where He lay.

Glory to our suffering Lord,
Praise to our exalted King,--
Source of life and endless bliss,--
Let us bring.
