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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Wand’rer, come to the only refuge
Heaven or earth can give to thee;
Come, and trust in a loving Saviour,
Ask of him thy friend to be.

No other refuge when the winds blow,
No other refuge when the dark waves flow;
No other refuge for the soul but he,
Who purchased salvation for the world and thee.

2 Cast thyself at the feet of Jesus,
Weak and helpless tho’ thou art;
There is joy for a troubled spirit,
Balm to heal thy broken heart. [Refrain]

3 Dost thou long for the bliss of pardon?
Is thy burden hard to bear?
Look to him who alone can save thee;
He will hear and grant thy prayer. [Refrain]

4 Take the yoke of the meek and lowly,
Make him now thy welcome guest;
Thou art weary and heavy-laden,—
Come to him and find thy rest. [Refrain]
