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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Come, burdened souls, with all your guilt,
And all your weight of woe,
There’s mercy at a throne of grace;
Keep praying as you go.

Keep praying, ever praying,
Thro’ all your journey below;
To Jesus, to Jesus,
Keep praying as you go.

2 Behold the precious Lamb who died
For man, his love to show;
And while you seek the blood-stained cross,
Keep praying as you go. [Refrain]

3 Now, soldiers, gird your armor on,
And boldly meet the foe;
Let faith direct, and hope inspire;
Keep praying as you go. [Refrain]

4 Ye pilgrims on the heavn’ly way,
Thro’ trials here below,
O, never doubt a Saviour’s love;
Keep praying as you go. [Refrain]
