We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

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

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

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 by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below.

418. Never Alone!

1 I’ve seen the lightning flashing,
And heard the thunder roll,
I’ve felt sin’s breakers dashing,
Trying to conquer my soul;
I’ve heard the voice of my Savior,
Telling me still to fight on;
He promised never to leave me,
Never to leave me alone!

Chorus:
No, never alone,
No, never alone,
He promised never to leave me,
He'll claim me for His own.
No, never alone,
No, never alone,
He promised never to leave me,
Never to leave me alone.

2 The world’s fierce winds are blowing;
Temptation’s sharp and keen;
I have a peace in knowing
My Savior stands between—-
He stands to shield me from danger
When earthly friends are gone;
He promised never to leave me,
Never to leave me alone. (Chorus)

3 When in affliction’s valley
I tread the road of care,
My Savior helps me to carry
My cross so heavy to bear;
Tho' all around me is darkness,
Earthly joys all flown;
My Savior whispers His promise,
Never to leave me alone. (Chorus)

4 He died on Calv'ry's mountain,
For me they pierced His side,
For me He opened that fountain,
The crimson, cleansing tide;
For me He’s waiteth in glory,
Seated upon His throne,
He promised never to leave me,
Never to leave me alone. (Chorus)
