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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Are you heavy laden, are you sad at heart?
Is your spirit weary with the sinner’s part?
There is One who heedeth e’en the sparrow’s fall,
And you’ll find Him waiting, when He hears you call.

He is waiting, He is waiting,
With hope for every loss,
If you’ll only let Him know,
He will make you white as snow,
In the shadow, in the shadow of the cross.

2 He is ever faithful, He is ever true,
He is ever holding out His hand to you.
Won’t you let Him help you in the bitter fight?
He will ever lead you in the paths of right. [Refrain]

3 Is your burden greater than your strength can bear?
Is your pathway darkened by the clouds of care?
Take your troubles to Him—lay them at His feet,
For there’s naught but kindness at the mercy seat. [Refrain]
