Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1. He who brought His ancient people,
With a strong and mighty hand,
Out of all their cruel bondage,
Into Canaan’s promised land.

Refrain
He has said, and we believe it,
’Tis a promise made of old,
From the trusting and the loving
No good thing will He withhold.

2. He who led them through the desert,
By the cloud that went before,
He whose goodness never failed them,
Though they grieved Him o’er and o’er. [Refrain]

3. God is faithful to His promise,
He is mindful of His own;
On our journey to His kingdom
We shall never walk alone. [Refrain]

4. We shall have His kind protection
And His love as in the past;
Though our days be few or many,
He will guide us to the last.
Refrain
