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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 O come, weary one, to the only sure Refuge,
Where mercy and pardon are boundless and free;
O haste with thy burden of sin and of sorrow,
Thy gracious Redeemer is waiting for thee.

Refrain:
Come, O come,
Where mercy and pardon are boundless and free;
Then haste with thy burden of sin and of sorrow,
Thy gracious Redeemer is waiting for thee.

2 O come, weary one, for the day beams are fading;
Say, why on the desert afar wilt thou roam?
The arms of the Saviour will gladly enfold thee,
He longs with forgiveness to welcome thee home. [Refrain]

3 O come, weary one, for the night clouds pursue thee;
How darkly they frown on the cold mountain’s brow;
The voice of the tempest is wailing around thee,
And none but the Saviour can shelter thee now. [Refrain]

4 O come, weary one, He is urging thee onward;
One step o’er the threshold and life thou shalt gain;
The light of His love thro’ the darkness is breaking;
All glory to Jesus, the Lamb that was slain! [Refrain]
