We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

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. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

1 Kom hen til mig, du trætte Sjæl!
Jeg er den gode Hyrde:
Saa sandt du vil dit eget Vel,
Saa kom med al din Byrde!
Kom, læg den hos mig ned,
Og tag udi dens Sted
Mit Aag, og lær af mig,
Paa Naade er jeg rig,
Og ydmyg ret af Hjerte.

2 Hos mig er Fred og Hvile sød,
Hos mig er Kraft og Styrke,
Hos mig er Lægedom i Nød,
Hos mig er Lys i Mørke;
O Sjæl, o tro mig blot,
Mit Aag det er saa godt,
Min Byrde er saa let,
Ak kom, hvis du er træt!
Du skal det aldrig angre.

3 O Jesus from! jeg kommer her,
Af dig jeg nu vil lære,
Min Synderbyrde ikke mer
Jeg magter nu at bære;
Jeg høre vil den Røst,
Giv du mig Ro og Trøst,
Og lad mig kjende ret,
Din Byrde den er let,
Dit Aag er Gavn og Glæde!

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
