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

Representative Text

1 Resting my soul on Jesus,
With all its sin and care,
Beneath the shelter of His cross,
None may accuse me there.

Come unto Jesus, all ye that labor,
all ye that labor and are heavy laden,
Come unto Jesus, all ye that labor,
and He will give you rest.

2 Resting my head on Jesus,
Thro’ all the noontide heat,
Thro’ all the din and turmoil here,
So oft in life we meet. [Refrain]

3 Resting my heart on Jesus,
When bruised and sad and sore,
He binds it up so tenderly
That it may bleed no more. [Refrain]

4 Resting for aye on Jesus,
In life or death my all,
I’ll gladly rise and follow Him,
Whenever He may call. [Refrain]
