Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.

1 Away with doubt, away with fear,
I know that God is always near;
I lay on Him my ev’ry care,
For He answers ev’ry pray’r.

He answers ev’ry pray’r,
To some He says “Yes,” to others “No,”
To some He says “Stay,” to others “Go,”
In His own time and way,
I know He answers ev’ry pray’r.

2 The billows high around me roll,
In His own hand He keeps my soul;
In Him I trust, no matter where,
For He answers ev’ry pray’r. [Refrain]

3 Let storm-clouds roll above my heard,
They’re filled with blessings He will shed;
I’ll have for these no anxious care,
For He answers ev’ry pray’r. [Refrain]

4 In life or death my song shall be,
The mighty God still cares for me;
Let trials come, what need I care,
For He answers ev’ry pray’r. [Refrain]
