Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 For this is not your rest, Oh! pilgrim stranger,
A narrow way at best, and full of danger;
Arise, depart,
Oh! weary heart,
His way leads to the cross and from the manger.

Refrain:
But there is a way, a beautiful way,
The redeemed of the Lord shall traverse one day;
No lion is there;
No shadow of care
Shall over the path of the ransomed ones stray.

2 For this is not your rest, Oh! pilgrim, weary,
Pursue your way with zest, though lone and dreary;
Then haste away,
Nor pine to stay,
The dawn of day is bright with hope, and cheery. [Refrain]

3 For this is not your rest, Oh! pilgrim brother,
Your cross and crown is blest, then seek no other;
Arise, with joy,
All doubt destroy,
We’ll sing his praise in meeting one another. [Refrain]
