Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 Does your burden heavy grow?
From the Lord cometh help;
Do your sorrows overflow?
From the Lord cometh help.
Be a soldier brave and true,
For the world is watching you,
And your prize is just in view,
From the Lord cometh help.

Refrain:
From the Lord, from the Lord,
For the struggle you will help and comfort find,
Truth emblazoned, love impearled,
Show your colors to the world,
‘Till the foe is backward hurl’d,—
From the Lord cometh help.

2 You have started up the hill,
From the Lord cometh help;
You may climb it if you will,
From the Lord cometh help;
Tho’ your progress may be slow,
Yet be satisfied to know
You are right, and onward, go,—
From the Lord cometh help. [Refrain]

3 When temptation’s hosts assail,
From the Lord cometh help;
They shall not with thee prevail,
From the Lord cometh help;
Tho’ you may be sorely tried,
Yet remember you’ve a Guide
Who is ever by your side—
From the Lord cometh help. [Refrain]
