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.

Representative Text

1 There's a soft pleading voice, calling tenderly,
To the heart heavy laden and sad;
At the cross thou shalt be, from thy burden set free,
Then look up, weary one, and be glad.

O come, unto Jesus,
And His love do not doubt;
This the promise to thee:
He that cometh unto Me,
I will never, no never cast out.

2 Heed not sin's luring tones, tho' so temptingly
She doth whisper of joys yet unknown;
Only Jesus can give pleasures sweet, that will live;
He withholds naught of good from His own. [Chorus]

3 When He hung on the cross, O how cruelly!
Did they mock as they pass'd by Him there!
Will you mock at Him too, when He hung there for you,
Whom He lov'd with a love past compare? [Chorus]

4 Yield to Him, for He pleads, O so patiently!
As no friend ever sought thee before,
On His dear, loving breast, all who come shall find rest;
Joy and peace to thy soul He'll restore. [Chorus]
