Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? 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.

Representative Text

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]
