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

Full Text

1 God my rock, my strength sustaining,
Why cast off my soul distressed?
Why am I in grief complaining,
By the pow’r of foes oppressed?

Refrain:
I shall be satisfied,
I shall be satisfied,
When I wake with Thy likeness;
I shall be satisfied,
I shall be satisfied,
When I wake with Thy likeness.

2 Now Thy light and truth forth sending,
Let them lead and guide me still,
Guide me to Thy house ascending,
Lead me to Thy holy hill. [Refrain]

3 There Thine altar, Lord, surrounding,
God, my God, my boundless joy,
Harp and voice aloud resounding,
Praise shall all my pow’rs employ. [Refrain]

4 Why my soul cast down and grieving?
Why within me such distress?
Hope in God, His help receiving,
God my life, I yet shall bless. [Refrain]
