Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

With a heart full of anxious request,
Which my Father in heaven bestowed,
I wandered alone, and distressed,
In search of a quiet abode.
Astray and distracted I cried, —
Lord, where would'st Thou have me to be?
And the voice of the Lamb that had died
Said, Come, my beloved, to ME.

I went — for He mightily wins
Weary souls to His peaceful retreat —
And He gave me forgiveness of sins,
And songs that I love to repeat;
And oft as my enemies came,
My views of His glory to dim,
He taught me to trust in His name,
And to triumph by leaning on Him.

Made pure by the blood that He shed,
My heart in His presence was free;
I was hungry and thirsty — He fed;
I was sick, and he comforted me;
He gave me the blessing complete —
The hope that is with me today,
And a quiet abode at his feet,
That shall not be taken away.

Hymns and Meditations, 1873
