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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Hurry and Tell Him

Representative Text

1 “Ask, and it shall be given you,” brother,
He is the Lord, who careth for all;
Come with your heart all broken and bleeding,
Come, He will hear and answer your call.

Hurry and tell Him, brother and sister;
Jesus, so tender, loving and kind,
Waiting to comfort, bless and deliver;
Hurry and tell Him, peace you will find.

2 Hurry and tell Him, why do you tarry?
Open your heart while Jesus is near;
Bring Him the burdens you cannot carry,
Tell Him with courage, nothing to fear. [Refrain]

3 Hurry and tell what tongue cannot utter,
Groaning and sighing, loaded with care;
Bruised and weak with doubting, you falter;
Tell Him, He waits your burdens to bear. [Refrain]

4 Hurry and tell Him every affliction,
Tell Him each pain and sorrow of heart;
Here is the word, “All power is given”;
“Lo, I am with you,” never to part. [Refrain]
