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, 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

1 Not so in haste my heart!
Have faith in God, and wait;
although he linger long,
he never comes too late.

2 He never cometh late;
he knoweth what is best;
vex not thyself in vain;
until he cometh, rest.

3 Until he cometh, rest,
nor grudge the hours that roll;
the feet that wait for God
are soonest at the goal.

4 Are soonest at the goal
that is not gained with speed;
then hold thee still, my heart,
for I shall wait his lead.
