Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. 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 clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

72. Entreaty and Hopeful Trust

1 Lord, hear me when I pray,
And answer me in grace;
Oft as I hear Thee say,
Come ye and seek My face,
My heart and lips their answer speak,
Thy face, Jehovah, will I seek.

2 Hide no thy face from me,
In wrath turn not away,
My help and Saviour be,
Forsake me not, I pray;
Should father, mother, both forsake,
The Lord on me will pity take.

3 Teach me, O Lord, Thy way,
Make plain tome my path;
Because my foes, I pray,
Protect me from their wrath;
To false accusers, cruel foes,
O Lord, do not my soul expose.

4 Faint-hearted would I be,
Didst Thou not promise, Lord,
I shall Thy goodness see
While Thou dost life accord.
Wait on the Lord, nor faint, nor fear,
Yea, trust and wait, the Lord is near.
