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

31. Have You Not Known, Have You Not Heard

1 Have you not known, have you not heard
that firm remains on high
the everlasting throne of him
who formed the earth and sky?

2 Are you afraid his pow'r shall fail
when comes thine evil day?
And can an all-creating arm
grow weary or decay?

3 Supreme in wisdom as in pow'r
the Rock of Ages stands,
though him you cannot see, nor trace
the working of his hands.

4 He gives the conquest to the weak,
supports the fainting heart;
and courage in the evil hour
his heav'nly aids impart.

5 Mere human pow'r shall fast decay,
and youthful vigor cease;
but they who wait upon the Lord
in strength shall still increase.

6 They with unwearied feet shall tread
the path of life divine;
with growing ardor onward move,
with growing brightness shine.

7 On eagles' wings they mount, they soar -
their wings are faith and love -
till, past the cloudy regions here,
they rise to heav'n above.
