Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

100. The Secret of Tranquillity

1 Forever trusting in the Lord,
Take heed to do His will;
So shall you dwell within the land,
So shall you dwell within the land,
And He your needs shall fill.

2 Delight thee in the Lord, and He
Will grant thy heart's request;
To Him commit thy way in faith,
To Him commit thy way in faith,
And thus thou shalt be blessed.

3 And He shall make your righteousness
Shine brightly as the light,
And as the burning noonday sun,
And as the burning noonday sun
Thy judgment shall be bright.

4 Rest in the Lord with quiet trust,
Wait patiently for Him;
Tho' wickedness triumphant seem,
Tho' wickedness triumphant seem,
Let not thy faith grow dim.
