Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 Touch my spirit with thy Spirit,
Lord of All, my Saviour;
Let me thy sweet rest inherit,
This my highest favor.

Rest, sweet rest, rest, sweet rest
In my blessed Saviour;
Rest, sweet rest, rest, sweet rest
In my blessed Saviour.

2 I have found him, what a treasure!—
Found my blessed Saviour;
This the pleasure of all pleasures,
Rest in my dear Saviour. [Refrain]

3 I have found him: past my weeping,
Blessed, blessed Saviour;
And my soul to thy kind keeping
I commit, dear Saviour. [Refrain]

4 On the earth this heavenly resting
Comes to me, dear Saviour;
This is love’s own manifesting
Through my blessed Saviour. [Refrain]

5 In this rest toil does not weary,—
Toil for thee, my Saviour;
In the gloom there’s nothing dreary,
With thee, O my Saviour. [Refrain]
