Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Are you heavy hearted, and oppressed with grief and care,
Weary of the duty-burden you in silence bear?
Faithful be, and patient—never yielding to despair,
Bear it, bravely bear it, just for Jesus’ sake.

Refrain:
Be a christian brave and true;
Bear the cross He gives to you:
Heavy tho’ it prove, yet in faith and love,
Bravely bear it just for Jesus’ sake.

2 Do you long for pleasures that allure on ev’ry side?
Think of Him—the Man of Sorrows—by His own denied!
Count it joy to suffer in His name, however tried,
Bear it, bravely bear it, just for Jesus’ sake. [Refrain]

3 When temptation whispers “’Tis for other hands to do!”
Think what He endured in dark Gethsemane for you;
Take the cross He gives you! to the blessed One be true,
Bear it, bravely bear it, just for Jesus’ sake. [Refrain]
