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.
1 Burdens are pressing in somebody’s life,
Thou knowest whom it may be;
Times of temptation and trials and strife,
All are permitted to see.
Let me be helpful in somebody’s life,
Time is now slipping away;
Here in this world where temptations are rife,
Let me help someone today.
2 Comfort is needed by many a heart
Saddened by sorrow and loss,
Not as the world gives would I have a part,
Only what comes from Thy cross. [Refrain]
3 Somebody’s needing a message of cheer,
Written or spoken by you,
If from your heart He has cast out all fear,
Someone needs that work done, too. [Refrain]
4 Many are blind to the need of Thy love,
Many are deaf to Thy call;
Open their eyes and their ears from above,
May they find Thee as their all. [Refrain]Source: New Songs of Praise and Power 1-2-3 Combined #326
