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 As weary I wandered o’er this toilsome way,
I see a fountain pure and free;
A fount where all may cool their thirst,
A fountain at Jesus’ feet.

Let me tarry
Let me tarry
At the fountain where the sparkling water freely flows;
In the presence of my Savior may I always stay,
Drinking deep of the fount of life.

2 The conflicts of life, and all the weight of care,
Would overcome my weary soul,
But for the fount where I may go,
That Christ may make me whole. [Refrain]

3 In heav’n with my Savior I shall always live,
And drink that water evermore;
I then shall never thirst again.
But live on that golden shore. [Refrain]
