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.

Great comforts does the Savior give

Great comforts does the Savior give

Representative Text

1 Great comforts does the Saviour give,
To those who in his word believe;
He says the father will indeed,
Grant to his Saints all they do need.

2 He bids us ask by faithful pray'r,
And solemnly he doth declare;
What e'er you ask in my bless'd name,
Ye shall be sure to have the same!

3 God's word and promise never fail,
All faithful pray'rs they must prevail;
God's promises are not in vain,
What e'er we need, we shall obtain.

4 God ever bows his gracious ear,
The pray'rs of faithful souls to hear;
Their times of troubles will be past
And all their wants reliev'd at last.

5 When the Disciples were distress'd;
With many doubts and fears oppress'd--
The Saviour bid them bear and wait,
And patiently endure their fate.

6 To their great comforts they should find,
That God was gracious, good and kind;
And they should find he was their friend,
Who made them happy in the end.

7 We join to pray in Jesus' name,
For God will be to us the same;
Such as he was in former days,
Which we shall witness to his praise.
