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.

Representative Text

1 Come with thy burdens and come with thy fears,
Come with thy weakness and come with thy tears;
Come with thy sins and thy sorrows confessed,
Come to the wonderful Giver of rest.

Come, come, come unto Me,
Come, come, come unto Me;
Ye who are burdened and sorely oppressed,
Come unto Me and find rest.

2 Come from the pleasures that only destroy;
Come to the fountain of heavenly joy;
Come to the feast so abundant and free,
All are invited, O come unto Me! [Refrain]

3 Now from the sighing and murmuring cease,
Rest on the bosom of infinite peace;
Balm for the weary and comfort are thine,
Rest on the bosom of mercy divine. [Refrain]

4 Come for the power to serve and obey,
Trust in the promise and fervently pray,
Wisdom and guidance are promised to thee,
Go to none other, but come unto Me. [Refrain]
