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 Beautiful mansions, home of the blest,
Land where the faithful ever shall rest;
There is my treasure, there shall I be;
Lord I am weary, lead me to Thee.

Savior, be near me,
Thy gentle voice can cheer me;
O Jesus, my Savior, lead me to Thee.

2 Here in a desert cheerless I roam.
Laden with sorrow, far from my home.
Clouds on my pathway darkly I see;
Lord I am weary, lead me to Thee. [Refrain]

3 Thou wilt not leave me comfortless here.
Why should I doubt Thee? What do I fear?
Light in the distance breaking I see,
Yet I am weary, lead me to Thee. [Refrain]

4 Jesus, I love Thee, dwell in my heart;
Never, O never from me depart.
Hope like a rainbow, shining, I see,
Yet I am weary, lead me to Thee. [Refrain]
