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 unto me and I will give you rest

Tune: [“Come unto Me and I will give you rest”]
Published in 4 hymnals

Representative Text

1 “Come unto Me and I will give you rest;”
What blessed words to weary ones addressed!
They come from Him who knew the depth of woe,
And felt for sinners as none here below.

2 “Come unto Me;” yes, come in all your sin!
Through Jesus blood the vile may enter in,
May come to God, by perfect grace thus led,
Assured that for themselves that blood was shed.

3 “Come unto Me;” yes, God Himself says “Come!”
He sees afar and runs to welcome home
Unworthy sinners, who have nought to plead
But God's own love, and their exceeding need.

4 “Come unto Me;” oh, blessed open door
For those who but for Christ had hoped no more!
Oh, love of God! told out in full extent,
When Jesus to those depths of darkness went!
