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

Full Text

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.

Refrain:
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]
