Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 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]
