Hymnary Friends,

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.
Harry Plantinga

God's faithful promises are sure

God's faithful promises are sure

Representative Text

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.
