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. O weary one burdened with sin and care,
For refuge quickly fly!
The door of God’s mercy is open wide,
And Jesus is passing by.

Refrain
Rest I will give you, rest, sweet rest,
O hear the Savior gently say;
Rest I will give you rest, sweet, rest,
Will you not come? O come today.

2. I suffered and died that you might have life,
Hear now the Savior say;
My comfort and peace I will give to you,
O come then without delay. [Refrain]

3. In pastures green I will make you feed,
And living waters give;
And there you’ll find rest from your care and toil,
Then come to Me now and live. [Refrain]
