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.
1 Go and tell Jesus, O desolate heart,
Go and tell Jesus how weary thou art;
Weary of trying without him to live,
Seeking for comfort the world cannot give.
Go and tell Jesus,—
Tell him how weary thou art,
Go, thy Saviour is waiting,
Waiting to comfort thy heart.
2 Go and tell Jesus, so ready to hear,
Whisper thy sorrow alone in his ear;
Long hast thou grieved him, but still he is kind;
Ask, he will give thee; go seek thou and find. [Refrain]
3 Narrow the gate but a light thou wilt see
Shining above it, and shining for thee;
Go, and, believing, acknowledge thy sin;
Knock, he will open and welcome thee in. [Refrain]
4 Go and tell Jesus thy soul is oppressed,
Go and tell Jesus ‘tis longing for rest,
Helpless, dependent, bend low at his throne,
Clinging by faith to his merits alone. [Refrain]Source: The Ark of Praise #48
