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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Representative Text

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

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. [Chorus]

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

4 Weary and lonely and troubled,
Broken in spirit and heart,
Come to the gracious Redeemer:
Child of His mercy thou art. [Chorus]
