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

Full Text

1 Weary, oh, yes, thou art weary,
Bearing thy burden of sin;
Clouds of the night are above thee,
Fear the temptation within.

Refrain:
Hear the sweet voice that is pleading with thee,
Pleading with thee, pleading with thee.
Hear the sweet voice that is pleading with thee,
Tenderly pleading with thee.

2 Lonely, oh, yes, thou art lonely,
Plodding thy desolate way,
Far from the arms that would shield thee,
Far from the light and the day. [Refrain]

3 Troubled, oh, yes, thou art troubled;
Comfort has flown from thy breast;
Only in Jesus thy refuge,
Only in him is thy rest. [Refrain]

4 Weary and lonely and troubled,
Broken in spirit and heart,
Come to thy gracious Redeemer;
Child of his mercy thou art. [Refrain]
