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 Give thanks to God, for He is good,
His mercy ever doth endure;
Let all of Israel now say
His mercy evermore is sure.

Refrain:
It is better to trust in the Lord,
It is better to trust in the Lord,
It is better to trust in the Lord,
Than to put your confidence in man.

2 Let now the house of Aaron say
His mercy ever doth endure;
Let them that fear the Lord now say
His mercy ever doth endure. [Refrain]

3 In my distress I called on God;
Jehovah heard my earnest prayer;
And since the Lord is on my side,
What man can do I will not fear. [Refrain]
