We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

So, please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? 

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. 

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

Come unto me

Jesus is waiting to welcome the weary

Representative Text

1 Jesus is waiting to welcome the weary,
Worn with the world’s fruitless striving for peace,
Tired with a night-watch that knoweth no morning,
Sick with a heartache that earth cannot ease.

Jesus is waiting, He standeth and knocketh,
Calling in love upon each one oppressed,
Come unto me, sinner, weary and laden;
I will receive you and give you my rest.

2 Long have you striven to find it without me,
Sought it in feelings emotional, vain;
These have all failed you, and still you are restless,
Seeking to purchase what naught can obtain. [Refrain]

3 Will you not come? you need no preparation,
Stay not to think, but come just as you are.
Bring nothing with you, for love giveth freely,
Peace, perfect peace that no sorrow can mar. [Refrain]

4 Doubting and troubled one, can you not trust me?
Able to save you from every ill,
Able to lead you through conflict to glory,
Able to way to life’s storm, “Peace be still.” [Refrain]

5 Oh I am yearning to see you unburdened,
Death did I suffer that you might be free.
Will you not come? and by life consecration,
Try to win others and bring them to me. [Refrain]
