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.
Harry Plantinga

CCCXXIX. Strength from Heaven

1 Whence do our mournful Thoughts arise?
And where's our Courage fled?
Have restless Sin and raging Hell
Struck all our Comforts dead?

2 Have we forgot the Almighty Name
That form'd the Earth and Sea?
And can an all-creating Arm
Grow weary, or decay?

3 Treasures of everlasting Might
In our Jehovah dwell;
He gives the Conquest to the Weak
And treads their Foes to Hell.

4 Mere mortal Power shall fade and die,
And youthful Vigour cease:
But we that wait upon the Lord,
Shall feel our Strength increase.

5 The Saints shall mount on eagles Wings,
And taste the promis'd Bliss,
'Till their unwearied Feet arrive
Where perfect Pleasure is.
