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,

Full Text

1. Go to the deeps of God's promise;
Ask freely of Him and receive;
All good may be had for the asking,
If, seeking, ye truly believe.

Chorus:
Go to the deeps of God's promise;
There's wideness of meaning untold
In the promises given His people,
And the treasures they ever unfold.

2. Go to the deeps of God's promise,
And know of His wonderful might;
Whatever would be a true blessing,
For Jesus' sake, comes as thy right. [Chorus]

3. Go to the deeps of God's promise;
The blessing is never denied;
He loves, and remembers His children,
And ev'ry good thing is supplied. [Chorus]

4. Go to the deeps of God's promise,
And claim whatsoever ye will;
The blessing of God will not fail thee,
His word He will surely fulfill. [Chorus]
