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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Christ's servants should not be afraid,
Their duties to perform;
The promises, the Lord hath made,
Will guard them in the storm.

2 They should not think it hard or strange,
To bear the Saviour's Cross;
For Satan seeks to have revenge
On those who cause his loss.

3 When Satan, sin, and world combine,
Their labours to oppose;
Yet Jesus by his pow'r divine,
Will baffle all such foes.

4 Tho' griefs and sorrows them await,
And trails of their faith;
To some it proves, their lot and fate,
To feel the stroke of death.

5 All this should never more indeed:
Fright feeble saints away;
God giveth strength as they do need,
According to the day.

6 Supported by that mighty hand,
Such servants may endure--
To persevere and firmly stand,
In spite of Satan's pow'r.
