Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

1 The trusting heart to Jesus clings,
Nor any ill forbodes,
But at the cross of Calv'ry sings,
Praise God for lifted loads!

Chorus:
Singing I go along life's road,
Praising the Lord, praising the Lord,
Singing I go along life's road,
For Jesus has lifted my load.

2 The passing days bring many cares,
"Fear not," I hear him say,
And when my fears are turned to prayers,
The burdens slip away. [Chorus]

3 He tells me of my Father's love,
And never slumb'ring eye;
My everlasting King above
Will all my needs supply. [Chorus]

4 When to the throne of grace I flee,
I find the promise true,
The mighty arms upholding me
Will bear my burdens too. [Chorus]
