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. Hark! the gentle voice of Jesus falleth
Tenderly upon your ear;
Sweet His cry of love and pity calleth;
Turn and listen, stay and hear.

Refrain
Ye that labor and are heavy-laden,
Lean upon your dear Lord’s breast;
Ye that labor and are heavy-laden,
Come, and I will give you rest.

2. Take His yoke, for He is meek and lowly;
Bear His burden, to Him turn;
He who calleth is the Master holy:
He will teach if you will learn. [Refrain]

3. Then, His loving, tender voice obeying,
Bear His yoke, His burden take;
Find the yoke His hand is on you laying,
Light and easy for His sake. [Refrain]
