Dear Friend of Hymnary,

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, 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.

1. Hark! there comes a whisper
Stealing on thine ear:
’Tis the Savior calling,
Soft, soft and clear.

Give thy heart to Me,
Once I died for thee;
Hark! Hark! thy Savior calls:
Come, sinner, come!

2. With that voice so gentle,
Dost thou hear Him say?
Tell Me all thy sorrows;
Come, come away! [Refrain]

3. Wouldst thou find a refuge
For thy soul oppressed?
Jesus kindly answers,
I am thy Rest. [Refrain]

4. At the cross of Jesus,
Let thy burden fall;
While He gently whispers,
I’ll bear it all. [Refrain]
