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,

Full Text

1 Amid these cares and sorrows,
When courage sinks away,
Out of the words that are divine,
And sweetly to this heart of mine,
I hear the Saviour say:

Refrain:
Call and I will answer thee,
Call and I will answer thee;
Call in thy faith, call in thy need,
And I will answer thee.

2 Amid these toils and trials,
When I am worn and weak,
Out of the words of hope and love,
That I may look to him above,
I hear the Saviour speak: [Refrain]

3 To comfort and sustain me,
Along this rugged way,
Out of the truths that ever shine,
To sweetly win this soul of mine,
I hear the Saviour say: [Refrain]
