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 Weary soul, by care oppress’d,
Wouldst thou find a place of rest?
Listen, Jesus calls to thee,
Come and find thy rest in me.
Come to me, come to me,
Come and find thy rest in me.

2 Hungry soul, why pine and die,
With exhaustless stores so nigh?
Lo! the board is spread for thee,
Come and feast today with me.
Come to me, come to me,
Come and feast today with me.

3 Thirsty soul, earth’s sweetest rill,
Mocks thee with its promise still?
Hark! the Savior calls to thee,
Here is water, come to me.
Come to me, come to me,
Here is water, come to me.

4 Homeless soul, thy path is drear,
Angry tempests gather near,
Night is dark’ning, over thee,
Here is shelter, come to me.
Come to me, come to me,
Here is shelter, come to me.

5 Heav’nly bread and heav’nly wine,
Living waters, all are mine;
Mine they are, and thine may be,
Weary wand’rer, come to me.
Come to me, come to me,
Weary wand’rer, come to me.
