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 How sweet is the blessing our hearts find in pray’r!
What comfort and peace it inspires!
A refuge in sorrow, a solace in care,
A shield in temptation’s fierce fires.

Refrain:
Prayer, prayer,
Balm for wounded hearts;
Prayer, prayer,
Shield for Satan’s darts;
Prayer, prayer,
Safeguard all the way,
Till life’s rugged path leads up
To realms of day.

2 How blest the assurance, when trials assail,
That pray’r brings us strength to o’ercome;
That our pleadings for succor shall ever prevail,
Till at length we shall reach that blest home. [Refrain]

3 The young and the aged rejoice in its power,
The weak and the weary at heart;
Through life’s toilsome journey, in death’s trying hour
Its promises will not depart. [Refrain]
