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 Sweetly the Saviour
Speaks to the heart,
“Come, O thou weary,
I’ll peace impart.”

Sweetly, O sweetly,
Whispers to thee,
Jesus the Saviour,
“Come unto Me.”

2 Softly, O softly,
Unto the sad,
Whispers the Saviour,
“I’ll make thee glad.” [Refrain]

3 Gently, O gently,
Pleads He with thee,
“I have redeemed thee,
Mine thou shouldst be.” [Refrain]
