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 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.

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]
