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

1 I heard the voice of Jesus say,
“Come unto me and rest;
Lay down, O weary one, lay down
your head upon my breast.”

2 I came to Jesus as I was,
so weary, worn, and sad,
And there I found a resting place,
where Jesus made me glad!

3 I heard the voice of Jesus say,
“Behold, I freely give
The living water; thirsty one,
draw near, and drink, and live.”

4 I came to Jesus, and I drank
of that life-giving stream;
My thirst was quenched, my soul revived,
and now I am redeemed.

5 I heard the voice of Jesus say,
“I am this dark world’s Light,
Look unto me; your morn shall rise,
and all your day be bright.”

6 I looked to Jesus, and I found
my guiding Star, my Sun;
And in that light of life I’ll go
till traveling days are done.
