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

Come to Jesus, are you lonely

Come to Jesus, are you lonely

Author: Anna Shipman
Published in 9 hymnals

Representative Text

1. Come to Jesus! are you lonely?
Solace sweet He will afford;
Lean on Jesus, Jesus only!
Come and find a loving Lord.

2. He is waiting will you leave Him,
Pleading at your heart in vain?
He is willing oh, believe Him;
He may never call again.

3. Now it is the time to test Him,
Test Him by His written word;
Come, for He will ne'er deny it;
Come to Christ, the risen Lord.

4. By still waters He will lead you,
In green pastures you shall rest;
And the pierced hands that freed you,
Bear you near His tender breast.
