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.
1 Commit thy way unto the Lord,
In troubles and distress;
And let his promise be your guard,
Your trust, your hope and peace.
2 All your complaints to him are known
And open to his view;
Your ev'ry sigh and ev'ry groan,
He hears and answers too.
3 His ways and dealings all are just,
Tho' not as man request;
Yet all his dispensations must
Then answer for the best.
4 Tho' pain and sickness bear you down
Like as a heavy load;
Yet all may serve to gain the crown,
Bestow'd on you from God.
5 Here view the footsteps of his love,
And tokens of his grace,
Whom he relieves, he must reprove,
That they may learn his ways.
6 And shouldst thou pass the vale of death,
The Lord will be thy friend;
And breathing of the latest breath,
Thy life in peace shall end.
