Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to
support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.
Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most
complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not
come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold
a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.
So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even
small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.
Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your
tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE,
Grand Rapids, MI 49546.
On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
1 God's faithful promises are sure,
Afford us life and vital pow'r;
Our aid, our comfort, trust and hope
In all afflictions bears us up.
2 This is the word by which we live,
What consolations will it give!
True peace and joy the humble mind
In these bless'd promises shall find.
3 No greater blessings can be known,
No greater mercies can be shown:
To understand that precious word,
Is to rejoice in Christ the Lord.
4 O! let us then with patience wait,
God's promises are sure and great:
His gifts and graces from above
Will fill our hearts with joy and love.
5 We bless and praise the Saviour's name,
By whom this great salvation came;
With all the nations sing his praise
And thank him for his saving grace.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #XI
