Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 great power divine now has given us
All we need for life and true godliness,
Through our knowing Him who has callèd us
And for His own glory given promises.

Refrain
He has given us His promises,
Very great and precious promises,
So we’ll be like Him, cleansed from all past sin.
Yes, our God has given us His promises.

2. To your faith add goodness and knowledge true,
Then add self-control, perseverance, too.
Then add godliness, kindness, then add, too,
Love to all, confirming God’s great promises. [Refrain]

3. If you have these traits in increasing store,
They will keep you from unproductive lore.
You’ll effective be knowing Christ our Lord,
Because God has given us His promises. [Refrain]

4. Any person lacking these qualities
Is nearsighted, blind, and he does not see.
He’s forgotten he from his sin is free
And that God has given us His promises. [Refrain]

5. So be eager now; make your calling sure.
If you do these things, you will fall no more.
You’ll be welcomed richly by Christ our Lord
And gain His kingdom, through His promises. [Refrain]
