Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? 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.

566. Fear Not, O Little Flock

1 Fear not, O little flock, the foe
who madly seeks your overthrow;
dread not his rage and pow'r:
what though your courage sometimes faints,
his seeming triumph o'er God's saints
lasts but a little hour.

2 Be of good cheer, your cause belongs
to him who can avenge your wrongs;
leave it to him, our Lord:
though hidden yet from all our eyes,
he sees the Gideon who shall rise
to save us and his Word.

3 As true as God's own Word is true,
nor earth nor hell with all their crew
against us shall prevail.
A jest and byword are they grown;
God is with us, we are his own;
our vict'ry cannot fail.

4 Amen, Lord Jesus, grant our pray'r;
great Captain, now your arm make bare,
fight for us once again;
so shall your saints and martyrs raise
a mighty chorus to your praise,
world without end. Amen.
