Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more.

But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue.

593. Be Strong, Fear Not

Prisoners of hope! be strong, be bold;
Cast off your doubts, disdain to fear!
The day which prophets have foretold,
And saints have longed for, draweth near:
Our God shall in His kingdom come;
Prepare your hearts to make Him room!

O ye of fearful hearts, be strong!
Your downcast eyes and hands lift up;
Doubt not, nor cry “O God, how long?”
Hope to the end, in patience hope!
O never from your faith remove;
Ye cannot fail, for God is love!

Lord, we have faith; we wait the hour
Which to the earth Thy kingdom brings;
When Thou, in love, and joy, and power,
Shalt come and make us priests and kings:
When man shall be indeed Thy son,
And Thy pure will on earth be done.
