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.
Harry Plantinga

O why art thou heavy laden

Representative Text

1 Oh, why art thou heavy laden?
Jesus calls "Come unto me,"
How he longs to lift thy burden,
And to give sweet rest to thee.
O give up thy fears and doubtings,
Cast thy care upon the Lord.
Now accept the grace he offers,
And believe his precious word.

Come to Jesus, still he's waiting
From thy sin to set thee free.
Let him lift thy heavy burden,
Let him give sweet rest to thee.

2 Come to Jesus, do not linger,
Come, and his promise believe;
Trusting in his offer'd mercy,
Now his pard'ning grace receive.
On his promises relying,
Seek his will and make it thine.
Ever walk and talk with Jesus,
Strength'n'd by his pow'r divine. [Refrain]

3 Welcome now the blessed Saviour
Into thy poor fainting heart;
He will give thee peace and comfort,
Bid each doubt and fear depart.
Near the Cross of Jesus hiding,
On his precious words rely.
He will shelter thee from danger,
He will ev'ry need supply. [Refrain]
