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 Troubled art thou? oh, be of good cheer;
Go and tell Jesus, he ever is near;
No anguish so deep, no trouble so dark,
But Jesus can bit it forever depart.

Refrain:
Go and tell Jesus, he ever is near;
Go and tell Jesus, have nothing to fear;
No anguish so deep, no trouble so dark,
But Jesus can bid it forever depart.

2 Tempted art thou? the Lord will provide
A way of escape; keep close to his side;
In watching and pray’r, by looking to him,
A crown of rejoicing, a vict’ry you’ll win. [Refrain]

3 Doubting art thou? examine thine heart,
Perhaps from the Savior you’re prone to depart;
Your love growing cold, your faith getting weak,
Repair to thy closet, with Jesus go speak. [Refrain]

4 Weary art thou, press on in the way,
Strength shall be given to thee with the day;
The burdens of life, if patiently borne,
Give place unto rest at the break of the morn. [Refrain]
