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?

1 Weary soul by sin oppressed,
Spend one hour with Jesus;
He will give your spirit rest,
Spend one hour with Jesus:
He has felt your grief before,
Numbered all your sorrows o’er,
He will ev’ry joy restore;
Spend one hour with Jesus.

2 Do you fear the gath’ring gloom?
Spend one hour with Jesus;
In the silent inner room,
Spend one hour with Jesus:
He will speak unto your soul,
Make your ev’ry heartache whole,
Point you to the Heav’nly Goal;
Spend one hour with Jesus.

3 Ev’ry need He will supply,
Spend one hour with Jesus;
He alone can satisfy,
Spend one hour with Jesus:
Oh, the mercy He will show,
Oh, the grace He will bestow,
Grace to conquer ev’ry foe;
Spend one hour with Jesus.

4 All along life’s stormy way,
Spend one hour with Jesus;
Call upon Him day by day,
Spend one hour with Jesus:
Tell Him all — He is your Friend,
He will countless blessings send,
He will keep you to the end;
Spend one hour with Jesus.
