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.

Representative Text

1 Where brothers are burdened and pathways are drear,
It is there that Jesus needs us;
Where sad ones are longing for courage and cheer,
It is there that Jesus needs us.

Refrain:
It is there that Jesus needs us,
It is there, It is there;
Where love may be shown to souls sad and lone,
It is there that Jesus needs us.

2 Where bosoms are sighing, where glistens the tear,
It is there that Jesus needs us;
Where brothers are waiting the story to hear,
It is there that Jesus needs us. [Refrain]

3 Where always are heard the harsh discords of strife,
It is there that Jesus needs us;
Where sorrow and pain and unkindness are rife,
It is there that Jesus needs us. [Refrain]

4 Where win is alluring the youthful and fair,
It is there that Jesus needs us;
Where brothers and sisters rush on to despair,
It is there that Jesus needs us. [Refrain]
