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 Are thy burdens very heavy,
Almost more than thou canst bear?
Take them to thy loving Saviour,
He His perfect strength will share.

Jesus, Jesus, blessed Jesus,
Thou wilt all our burdens bear;
Thou canst heal the sick and weary,
Thou wilt take our ev’ry care.

2 Art thou sad and heavy-laden,
With the mem’ry of the sin?
Thou canst have a full, free pardon,
If thoul’t let the Saviour in. [Refrain]

3 Jesus seeks to gain admittance,
He has often sought before;
But the hinges have brown rusty,
And He finds a fast closed door. [Refrain]

4 Open wide the sin-barred entrance,
To this kind and heav’nly guest;
He the darkness soon will banish,
And will give thee perfect rest. [Refrain]
