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. Weary burdened wand’rer,
There is rest for thee,
At the feet of Jesus,
In His love so free;
Listen to His message,
Words forever blest,
Oh, thou heavy laden,
Come to Me and rest.

Refrain
Come, oh come to Me,
Come, oh come to Me,
Jesus now is waiting, calling
Come, oh come to Me.

2. Bring Him all thy burdens,
All thy guilt and sin,
Mercy’s door is open,
Rise and enter in.
Jesus there is waiting,
Patiently for thee,
Hear Him gently calling,
Come, oh, come to Me. [Refrain]

3. Linger then no longer,
Come just now to Him;
Ere the shadows gather,
And thy light grows dim.
Thou hast long been waiting
For some better time,
But today He’s calling,
Come and claim Him thine. [Refrain]

4. He will bid thee welcome,
At the blessèd cross,
Turn to joy thy mourning,
Turn to gold thy dross.
He will lead thee gently,
All along the way,
In the path that shineth,
Unto perfect day. [Refrain]
