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.
1. When a shadow falleth
At the close of day
On the weary spirit,
Dark'ning all the way;
Like a golden sunbeam
Lighting up the west
Are the words of Jesus,
"Come to me and rest."
Blessed words he speaketh
To the heart opprest;
O hear him!
"Come, ye heavy laden,
Come to me, and I will give you rest."
2. Blessed words of Jesus,
Banishing our fears,
Shining like a rainbow
On our falling tears.
Full of joy and comfort
Full of peace so blest,
Are the words he speaketh,
"Come to me and rest. [Chorus]
3. "Come," in love he pleadeth,
"Come to me today,"
Waiting not a moment
Gladly we obey.
Satisfied while leaning
On his gentle breast;
Praising him for saying,
"Come to me and rest." [Chorus]Source: Carols of Hope: a compilation of select sacred songs for use in Sunday schools, praise and young people's services #202
