Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. 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 clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 My Saviour, Thou hast offered rest:
Oh, give it then, to me;
The rest of ceasing from myself,
To find my all in Thee.

Refrain:
Resting, I am resting,
I Thyself would prove;
Resting, I am resting,
Feasting on Thy love.

2 This cruel self oh, how it strives
And works within my breast,
To come between Thee and my soul,
And keep me back from rest. [Refrain]

3 Now many subtle forms it takes
Of seeming verity,
As if it were not safe to rest
And venture all on Thee. [Refrain]

4 O Lord, I seek a holy rest,
A vict’ry over sin!
I seek that Thou alone shouldst reign,
O’er all without, within. [Refrain]

5 In Thy strong hand I lay me down,
So shall the work be done,
For who can work so wondrously
As the Almighty One? [Refrain]
