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.

Representative Text

1 Burdened soul, in sin and woe,
Knowing not where you may go;
Light to find, and rest and peace,
Come to Christ and find release.

Jesus died for all in sin,
Burdened one, oh, come to him;
He has peace and joy to give,
Trust his priceless love and live.

2 Hopeless soul, in darkness sore,
Look to Jesus evermore;
He will be your hope and light,
Ever guide your feet aright. [Refrain]

3 Doubting soul, you have a Friend,
Who will keep you to the end;
Wait no longer, seek his grace,
He will show a smiling face. [Refrain]

4 Will you spurn the Savior’s voice,
Making sin and death your choice?
Will you yet your woe endure,
Cheat your life from all that’s pure? [Refrain]
