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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

681. How Gentle God's Commands

1 How gentle God's commands,
how kind his precepts are!
Come, cast your burdens on the Lord,
and trust his constant care.

2 While Providence supports,
let saints securely dwell;
that hand, which bears all nature up,
shall guide his children well.

3 Why should this anxious load
press down your weary mind?
Haste to your heav'nly Father's throne,
and sweet communion find.

4 His goodness stands approved,
down to the present day;
I'll drop my burden at his feet,
and bear a song away.
