We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

So, please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? 

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. 

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,
Harry Plantinga

655. All My Hope on God Is Founded

1 All my hope on God is founded;
who doth still my trust renew:
I through change and chance am guided,
only good and only true.
God unknown,
God alone
calls my heart eternally home.

2 Human pride and earthly glory,
sword and crown, betray our trust;
what with care and toil is built up,
tower and temple, fall to dust.
But God's power,
hour by hour,
is my temple and my tower.

3 Daily doth the almighty giver
bounteous gifts on us bestow.
God's desire our soul delighteth,
pleasure leads us where we go.
Love doth stand
hand in hand;
joy doth wait on God's command.

4 God's great goodness eye endureth,
deepest wisdom, passing thought:
splendour, light and life attending,
beauty springeth out of naught.
from God's store
new-born worlds rise and adore.
