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

May I come to thee

Gentle Savior, meek and lowly, Precious name

Author: Fanny J. Crosby
Tune: [Gentle Savior, meek and lowly]
Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Gentle Saviour, meek and lowly
Precious name so dear to me
I would take Thy yoke and bear it;
May I come and learn of Thee?

Gentle Saviour, meek and lowly,
At Thy feet I humbly bow;
Hear, O hear my earnest pleading,
Seal the heart I offer now.

2 I would make a full surrender,
Of my all, to Thy control;
In the path of life eternal,
Only Thou canst lead my soul. [Refrain]

3 I am weak and heavy-laden,
On Thy bosom let me rest;
From the power of sin defend me;
Be Thou still my welcome guest. [Refrain]
