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 I love to talk with Jesus, for it smoothes the rugged road;
And it seems to help me onward, when I faint beneath my load;
When my heart is crush'd with sorrow and my eyes with tears are dim,
There is naught can yield me comfort like a little talk with Him.

2 Oft I tell Him I am weary and I fain would be at rest;
That I'm daily, hourly longing to repose upon His breast;
And He answers me so kindly in the tend'rest tones of love,
"I am coming soon to take thee to My happy Home above."

3 Though the way is long and dreary to that far-off distant clime,
Yet I know that my Redeemer journeys with me all the time;
And the more I come to know Him, and His wondrous grace explore,
How my longing groweth stronger still to know Him more and more.

4 So, I'll wait a little longer till my Lord's appointed time,
And along the upward pathway still my pilgrim feet shall climb;
Soon within my Father's dwelling, where the many mansions be,
I shall see my blessed Saviour, and He then will talk with me.
