We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

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. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Be Not Afraid, Only Believe

Representative Text

1 Believe, oh, believe on the Lord,
Be fearless and trust in His love;
He knows thee and gives thee His word,
He’ll help thee with strength from above.

Believe, oh, believe on the Lord,
Believe, oh, believe on the Lord.

2 No evil thy soul can destroy,
No sorrow thy heart overcome,
For Jesus, thy friend, standeth by,
He’s waiting to welcome thee home. [Refrain]

3 He heareth thy soul’s whispered prayer,
He seeth the penitent tear;
He surely thy burden will bear,
He only can banish thy fear. [Refrain]
