We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

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]
