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 my soul is bowed down in the darkness,
With trials, temptation and woe,
When no mortal can comfort or cheer me,
To whom in that hour shall I go?
Jesus will listen to me,
Jesus will listen to me;
When, with burdens breaking, my heart is aching,
Then Jesus will listen to me.
2 When my friends and my trusted ones leave me,
Then, shrouded in sorrow and fear,
All alone in the midst of earth’s comfort,
I still have a listening ear. [Refrain]
3 When my heart and my life have grown weary
With failure and trouble and loss,
I may still ask for help and for comfort
From hands that were nail’d to the cross. [Refrain]
4 When I find that my life’s day is ending,
And shadows of eventide fall,
When I enter the dark, lonely valley,
Ah, then upon whom shall I call? [Refrain]Source: The Old Story in Song #183
