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

1 Blessed is he that is trusting the Lord,
For the help that he daily needs;
He shall inherit the promised reward,
If he follows where Jesus leads.

Refrain:
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart,
And in all thy ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct thy paths;
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart,
And in all thy ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct thy paths.

2 Blessed is he that is trusting the Lord,
Who doth follow the heavenly way;—
Keeping with patience and hope the path.
All His steps shall be guarded each day. [Refrain]

3 Blessed is he whom the Father will aid,
And the Saviour will e’er befriend;
He shall not fear, and shall not be dismayed,
For the Lord will his soul defend. [Refrain]

4 Blessed is he who will keep in the way
That will upward and onward lead;
Walking by faith in His love ev’ry day,
Who supplieth his daily need. [Refrain]
