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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 Do you think that my Saviour will leave me?
His kindness, oh, say will it fail?
Do you think that his arm will grow weary?
The light of his countenance pale?

He will fail me, no, never!
I may trust him forever,
Oh, true and unchanging this infinite Friend,
Jesus loves his own,
Who his grace have known;
Jesus loves his own, and he loves to the end.

2 Do you think he is ever discouraged,
While bringing his “little flock” home?
He has promised that never, oh! never,
Shall those be cast out who will come. [Refrain]

3 Oh, I know that my dear Saviour loves me,
Because he has wakened my love,
So I know he will never forsake me,—
His will is to bring me above. [Refrain]
