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.

Representative Text

1. Have you grown discouraged, weary,
Amid the cares of life?
Do you often grow disheartened
And falter in the strife?
Jesus knows about the burden,
He’ll bear you safely thro’;
Then sing a song of gladness,
He’ll care for you.

Keep on singing!
The world is bright and fair;
God is o’er us,
His love is everywhere;
He will keep you,
Just trust Him all the way,
And keep on singing,
Thro’ every day.

2. Do you wander from the Savior,
And sometimes lose the way?
Does the tempter oft assail you
And beckon day by day?
Never fear! be strong, courageous,
The Lord will surely win;
He’ll conquer every trial
And save from sin. [Refrain]

3. Hear the Savior gently pleading,
Come lay your sins on Me;
I will give you full salvation,
Will pardon, set you free;
Just believe His precious promise,
Accept Him for your own;
Come sing your psalms of gladness
Before His throne. [Refrain]
