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 Stay, weary child, the Saviour calls,
Oh, turn and hear his gentle voice;
Come, now, to him be reconciled,
And he will bid thy heart rejoice.

Oh, hear the Saviour’s voice,
He’s calling now to thee,
Oh, make him now your choice,
He offers pardon, full and free.

2 Oh hear the loving voice that calls,
Forsake the dearest paths of sin,
For at the gates of mercy, now,
The Saviour waits to let thee in. [Refrain]

3 Then, weary child, to Jesus come,
All weak and helpless as thou art,
Thy burden to the Saviour bring,
And he will cheer thy drooping heart. [Refrain]
