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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1. When your heart with life’s burdens is weary,
And the pathway around you is drear,
There is one who is always beside you,
Your cry of distress He will hear.

Go tell your story to Jesus,
He is your Savior and Guide;
He came from above, in infinite love,
To save you on Calv’ry He died;
Trusting this gracious Redeemer,
You may your courage renew;
Go tell your story to Jesus,
Find out how much He loves you.

2. Come to Me is the kind invitation
Of Jesus, your Savior and Lord;
Lean on Him, there is rest in His bosom,
Find comfort in His holy Word. [Refrain]

3. When the trials of life are all ended,
When you reach the glad home of the blest,
You will dwell in the glory with Jesus,
Forever with Him you will rest. [Refrain]
