We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 Fresh from the fountain of God’s love eternal,
Christ, came a gift to a lost ruined race.
Veiling His glory and stooping to serve us,
Bidding us freely receive of His grace.

Come unto Me all ye weary and sad,
I’ll take your burdens and I’ll make you glad.
Come unto Me all ye weary and sad,
I’ll take your burdens and I’ll make you glad.

2 Bringer of joy, yet Himself Man of Sorrows,
Herald of hope, yet acquainted with grief;
Spotless His soul, pierced by wrath’s fiery arrows,
Burdened and wounded to give us relief. [Refrain]

3 Raised from the dead and exalted in glory,
Object of worship enthroned on high.
Still sounds His voice in the old, old sweet story,
Pleading with sinners that they might draw nigh. [Refrain]
