Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 Come and sit at Jesus’ feet,
Come and learn of him;
Words of comfort, pure and sweet,
Come and learn of him.

Refrain:
Learn of him, O toil-oppressed;
Lean thy head upon his breast;
He will give thee perfect rest,—
Come and learn of him

2 Take his yoke upon thee now,
Come and learn of him;
Ask, and he will teach thee how,
Come and learn of him. [Refrain]

3 How to trust for ev’ry day,
Come and learn of him;
How to watch, as well as pray,
Come and learn of him. [Refrain]

4 For his glory wouldst thou live?
Come and learn of him;
He the grace will freely give,
Come and learn of him. [Refrain]
