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 I am coming, O my Saviour;
For Thy child I long to be;
I am coming, for I heard Thee
On the desert calling me.

I am weary, I am weary,
And I fain would be at rest;
Let Thy gentle peace descending
Fold its pinions on my breast.

2 Let me take Thy yoke upon me,
And with meekness learn Thy will;
Let Thy voice, like sweetest music,
Bid my troubled heart be still. [Refrain]

3 I am coming, I am coming,
And Thy promise I believe;
If I seek thee I shall find Thee;
And Thy pardon now receive. [Refrain]
