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.

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.

Representative Text

1 O troubled heart, why seek in vain
The balm of rest from earth to gain,
While Jesus waits your King to reign,
And all your sins forgive?

Refrain:
Awake, arise, no more delay,
He calls you now, His voice obey;
The loving words He speaks today,
O hear, and you shall live.

2 He calls again, on Him believe,
His gift of grace thro’ faith receive;
Your truest Friend no longer grieve,
But haste your heart to give. [Refrain]

3 To Jesus come, and at His feet
That precious Name with praise repeat;
O trust Him now, and learn how sweet
The peace His love will give. [Refrain]
