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.

Representative Text

1 Ah! my heart was heavy-laden,
Burdened and distressed;
When I heard the Saviour saying,
“Come unto me and rest.”

Blessed, blessed words of Jesus,
Blessed words of love;
Spoken to the weary sinner,
By the Lord above.

2 “I will carry all your burdens,
Lean thou upon me;”
Thus I heard the Saviour saying,
Words that set me free. [Refrain]

3 Take my yoke just now upon you,
Seek to learn the right;
For my yoke is very easy,
And my load is light. [Refrain]
