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

Representative Text

1 Hasten, ye weary, why do you linger?
Waters are flowing that sparkle for you,
Close by the wayside, cool and refreshing;
Come, and your vigor and strength renew.

There you may rest, happy and blest,
Safe with the Shepherd kind;
He from danger will protect you,
Rest forever you there shall find.

2 Hasten, ye weary, green are the pastures
Where your Redeemer will bid you repose;
Great are the mercies, rich are the blessings,
Falling in love till your cup o’erflows. [Refrain]

3 Come to the banquet he is preparing,
Under his banner you then shall recline;
There on his bosom he will enfold you,
Causing his light in your soul to shine. [Refrain]
