We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

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. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

1 Rest in the Lord and be thou still,
With patience wait His holy will,
Enduring to the end.
Fret not tho' sinners' gains increase;
forsake thy wrath, from anger cease;
It will to evil tend.

2 The evildoer soon shall die,
But those that on the Lord rely
Shall all the land obtain;
A little while and thou shalt see
That wicked men cut off shall be,
They shall be sought in vain.

3 Yea, thou shalt soon consider well
The place where they were wont to dwell,
And it shall not be found;
But saints shall all the land possess,
And find delight and happiness
where fruits of peace abound.

4 The vile may plot against the just
who in the Lord Jehovah trust,
But God will scorn them all;
The Lord their coming day shall see,
When broken all their pow'r shall be,
And ruin on them fall.
