Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.

Representative Text

1 I am coming, Lord, to Thee with my broken heart;
I am coming, Lord, to Thee for rest;
Wilt Thou hear my humble plea, bid my sins depart?
Oh, release me, Savior, I’m oppressed.

Refrain:
I am coming, Lord, to Thee, wilt Thou hear my humble plea?
I am coming with my heart oppressed;
I am coming, I am coming,
I am coming, Lord, to Thee for rest.

2 I am coming, Lord, to Thee with relenting will,
I will gladly lay my burden down;
I will consecrate to Thee and Thy law fulfill,
I will bear the cross, and wear a crown. [Refrain]

3 I am coming, Lord, to Thee, and with anguish riv’n,
I am weary, worn, and tired of sin;
Lord, I press my urgent plea, may I be forgiv’n?
While I knock, O Savior, let me in. [Refrain]

4 I am coming, Lord, to Thee with an aching breast,
And I know that Thou wilt hear my cry;
I will leave the paths of sin, for my heart’s distressed,
Save me, or I perish, Lord, and die. [Refrain]

5 I am coming, Lord, to Thee, for I’m sick and sore,
Do not turn from me Thy smiling face;
Lord, for mercy now I call, I will sin no more,
Wilt Thou hear and save me by Thy grace? [Refrain]
