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 Sad and weary, lone and dreary,
Lord, I would thy call obey;
Thee believing, Christ receiving,
I would come to thee today.

I am coming, I am coming,
Coming, Saviour, to be blest;
I am coming, I am coming,
Coming, Lord, to thee for rest.

2 Thou, the Holy, meek and lowly,
Jesus, unto thee I come;
Keep me ever, let me never
From thy blessed keeping roam. [Refrain]

3 Here abiding, in thee hiding,
Seeks my weary soul to rest,
Till the dawning of the morning,
When I wake among the blest. [Refrain]

4 Be thou near me, keep and cheer me,
Thro’ life’s dark and stormy way;
Turn my sadness into gladness,
Turn my darkness into day. [Refrain]
