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.

102. Trust In God

1 What tho’ the fig-tree blossoms not,
Nor fruits adorn the olive grove?
What tho’ it be my fearful lot,
‘Midst barren vines and fields to rove?
Tho’ bleating flocks no more I see,
Nor herds within the stall appear;
Yet, still in God my trust shall be,
I’ll serve Him more from love than fear.

Oh, praise His name! His glories sing!
Celestial joy shall tune your voice;
Behold He reigns your God and King,
In Him rejoice! in Him rejoice!

2 ‘Tis surely in His love alone,
The Lord our God His judgment sends;
In all His ways is mercy shown,
Throughout the earth’s remotest ends.
So let us then our banners raise,
To all the world His love proclaim;
The God of our salvation praise,
With triumph in His holy name. [Chorus]

3 What though thro’ death’s dominion lies
The path that leads to yonder rest,
Yet, still my song of praise shall rise
To Him whose hand my soul hath blest.
Yea, though I pass the shades of death,
With clouds and darkness overcast,
I’ll praise Him with my latest breath,
For O, He loves us to the last. [Chorus]

4 I know that my Redeemer lives;
I know that He ascends on high;
In love His children He forgives,
And wipes the tears from ev’ry eye.
Hosanna to His name I’ll sing,
In whom such goodness I have found;
My light, my joy, my everything;
Let saints and men His praise resound. [Chorus]
