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

Representative Text

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
