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 God will not fail you,
Tho’ wrong assail you,
If to His pow’r you look for aid;
Then trusting ever,
And doubting never,
Press forward, trust, be not dismayed.

Refrain:
God never fails! He never fails!
Tho’mighty host of sin assails;
More strong His pow’r than coming foe,
Who trusts in Him shall vict’ry know;
God never fails! He never fails!
Tho’mighty host of sin assails;
No one to Him has looked in vain,
Press on the vict’ry to attain!

2 God will not fail you,
Tho’wrong assail you,
From His high throne He watches all;
His pow’r defending,
His host attending,
The mighty foe in fear shall fall. [Refrain]

3 God will not fail you,
Tho’wrong assail you,
With Him shall one a thousand prove;
His pow’r if glorious,
His arm victorious,
His mighty hosts to vict’ry move. [Refrain]
