Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Please, before you close this box, would you today consider making a donation to Hymnary. Did you know that more than two million people came here in the first four months of 2017? These are people who have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site, and they are grateful for the resources they find here.

But, as you can imagine, keeping this site going does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue.

So, if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do. You can make your tax-deductible contribution through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team, thanks.
Harry Plantinga

My soul doth wait on God

My soul doth wait on God

Published in 1 hymnal

Full Text

My soul doth wait on God,
From Him my help proceeds;
His mercy is exceeding broad,
To overtake my needs.

He gives His pardoning grace,
When I my sin confess;
Nor ever hides from me His face
In my distressfulness.

The Spirit of all power,
Most freely He bestows;
And I am strong in evil hour,
When pressed by direst foes.

173
Oh, He has gifts in store,
More rich than wealth commands;
And when His pity I implore,
He fills my empty hands.

God, Thou art good and kind,
And full of tender grace;
Have me for ever in Thy mind,
Nor hide from me Thy face.
