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

964. In the Furnace of Thy Love

1 Why should a mortal man complain
At his trials in this wicked world?
Nay, let us thank God’s holy name
For all His love o’er us unfurled.

Refrain:
O Jesus, bear our souls above
Each wave of trouble that we meet;
Then in the furnace of Thy love
We’ll sing Thy praise with joy complete!

2 Oh, why should anyone oppressed
Forget the promise of our God!
To thee each providence is blest
If in love thou bear the chast’ning rod. [Refrain]

3 Oh, who would cast away the gold
We’ve gathered in the furnace flame!
And who would wish again the dross
Here purged in our Redeemer’s name? [Refrain]
