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

78. Trusting in the Promise

1 I have found repose for my weary soul,
Trusting in the promise of the Saviour;
And a harbor safe when the billows roll,
Trusting in the promise of the Saviour.
I will fear no foe in the deadly strife,
Trusting in the promise of the Saviour;
I will bear my lot in the toil of life,
Trusting in the promise of the Saviour.

Chorus:
Resting on his mighty arm forever,
Never from his loving heart to sever,
I will rest by grace in his strong embrace,
Trusting in the promise of the Saviour.

2 I will sing my song as the days go by,
And rejoice in hope, while I love or die,
I can smile at grief, and abide in pain,
And the loss of all shall be highest gain.
[Chorus]

3 Oh, the peace and joy of the life I live,
Oh, the strength and love only God can give,
Whosoever will may be save today,
And begin to walk in the holy way.
[Chorus]
