Included in the current Portuguese, Samoan, Spanish, and Tongan hymnbooks, it is well-known to a significant percentage of church members. The Mormon Tabernacle Choir has multiple YouTube videos:
The hymn was included in official English publications until 1969. Here is the version from the The Songs of Zion (1918).

Please include this inspiring hymn in our new hymnal. The refrain “weary not” reminds us that enduring to the end in all things brings hope and peace in the Savior.
Please include this in the new hymnbook. It is a very comforting hymn and if it is already included in the hymn books of non-English singing, it is very logical to include it. I am excited to learn hymns that now sung in other languages.
If “Weary Not” is not included on the new hymnbook don’t bother to publish it!!’
Yes it should be. Members need hymns that are enjoyable, memorable, easy to sing anytime and provide an uplift in their in times of trial which are common in this life.
Absolutely can be in a new hymn book
This hymn has lifted me up over and over in difficult times. It’s a beautiful portrayal of the atonement in real life.

Please include this hymn
I love this hymn so much! It comforts me. I’ve played the tab choir YouTube video many many times. I’m so delighted it is in hymnals in other languages and hope it is in the next edition of the English hymns!!
Yes, it should be added to the new Hymn Book, please.
One of my favorites on the Brazilian hymnal
I think that this hymn/gospel song should be included in the new hymn book.
I think the message is beautiful! And if it’s good enough to be one of President Monson’s go to song amid trials it is good enough for me!
Yes, yes, yes! Include it in the new hymn book. I am very familiar with this hymn but don’t know why. I can’t find it in the current hymn book or the old.one I have (brown cover) I seem to remember a dark blue covered one though. Is it in that one? I just love it.
“If The Way Be Full Of Trial, Weary Not” should be included in the new hymnbook, YES>
And Also should “IT IS WELL WITH MY SOUL”. YES
I don’t care for this tune. It is reminiscent of, and has all the musical interest of She’ll Be Comin’ Around the Mountain… Tedious and pedestrian.
It is one of my favorite Christian songs! It should be included in the new hymn book!
Yes yes yes
Yes, its lovely. Does anyone have the music for the Spanish version, please.
