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

I will give you rest

Representative Text

1 Come unto me, all ye who are weary,
Heavily laden, cumber'd with care,
Cast upon me the sum of your anguish,
I will give joy and blessings most rare.

Come unto me, ye heavily laden,
Burden'd with care and sorrow oppress'd;
Breathe in my ear the tale of your sorrows,
I will give you rest.

2 Come unto me, ye burden'd with sorrows,
Pillow your weary head on my breast;
Breathe in my ear the tale of your heart's woes,
Ever in me the weary find rest. [Chorus]

3 Come unto me, ye wretched and sinful,
Why do you wait, my Spirit to grieve?
Long have I stood with arms wide extended;
Look unto me, yes, look and live. [Chorus]

4 Rest for the weary, food for the hungry,
Grace for the humble, joy for the sad,
Sight for the blind, and balm for the wounded,
Come unto me, rejoice and be glad. [Chorus]
