Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

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

Representative Text

1 O troubled heart, there is a home,
Beyond the reach of toil and care;
A home where changes never come,
Who would not fain be resting there?

Chorus:
O. wait, meekly wait, and murmur not,
O wait, meekly wait, and murmur not;
O, wait, O, wait,
O, wait, and murmur not.

2 Yet when bow'd down beneath the load
By heav’n allowed, thine earthly lot;
Look up! thoul’t reach that sweet abode,
Wait, meekly wait, and murmur not. [Chorus]

3 If in thy path some thorns are found,
O, think who wore them on His brow;
If grief thy sorrowing heart has found,
It reached one holier than thou. [Chorus]

4 Toil on, nor deem, tho' sore it be,
One sigh unheard, one pray'r forgot;
The day of rest will dawn for thee;
Wait, meekly wait, and murmur not. [Chorus]
