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.

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.
