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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 There is sweet rest in Jesus,
For ev’ry troubled soul;
There is sweet rest in Jesus,
Whose word can make thee whole.
Ye need not groan ‘neath burdens
Upon your soul hard pressed,
Lay down each unsolved question,
And in Him be at rest;
Lay down each unsolved question,
And in Him be at rest,
At rest, at rest,
And in Him be at rest.

2 “Come unto me ye weary,”
Oh, hear the tender call!
“My peace I give unto thee,”
How sweet the accents fall.
No off’ring can y bring Him,
Save at His feet lay down
Your willing heart and giving,
Receive for naught, a crown;
Your willing heart and giving,
Receive for naught, a crown,
A crown, a crown,
Receive for naught a crown.

3 Why will ye not believe Him,
Ye sick and sore distressed?
Why will ye not receive Him
And be at peace and rest?
“Let not your heart be troubled,”
Amen, so let it be,
I lay my trembling hands in thine,
For all eternity;
I lay my trembling hands in thine,
For all eternity.
At rest, at rest,
For all eternity.
