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

649. When We Cannot See our Way

1 When we cannot see our way,
Let us trust, and still obey;
He who bids us forward go,
Cannot fail the way to show.

2 Though it seems the bloom of night,
Though we see no ray of light;
Since the Lord Himself is there,
‘Tis not meet that we should fear.

3 Night with Him is never night,
Where He is, there all is light;
When He calls us, why delay?
They are happy who obey.

4 Be it our’s then, while we’re here,
Him to follow without fear!
Where He calls us, there to go,
What He bids us, that to do!
