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, 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

1 If the world from you withhold of its silver and its gold,
and you have to get along with meager fare,
just remember in his Word, how he feeds the little bird,
take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.

Leave it there, (leave it there) leave it there, (leave it there)
take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.
If you trust and never doubt, he will surely bring you out;
take your burden to the Lord and leave it there. (leave it there)

2 If your body suffers pain, and your health you can’t regain,
and your soul is almost sinking in despair,
Jesus knows the pain you feel, he can save and he can heal,
take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.

3 When your enemies assail and your heart begins to fail,
don’t forget that God in heaven answers prayer;
he will make a way for you, and will lead you safely through,
take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.

4 When your youthful days are done, and old age is stealing on,
and your body bends beneath the weight of care,
he will never leave you then, he’ll go with you to the end,
take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.
