Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

If Temptation oft confronts you

Representative Text

1 If temptation oft confronts you with unrelenting pow’r,
Seeking from the path of Right your steps to lead,
God has promised to be with you; look to him in faith each hour,
There’s a promise which will suit your ev’ry need!

There’s a promise! yes, a promise!
From temptation’s pow’r you swiftly may be free;
There’s a promise glad and sure which for ever will endure,
There’s a promise which will suit your ev’ry need!

2 In your labors for the Master do you sometimes weary grow,
Seeing not the harvest from the scattered seed?
Do not fret about the reaping, seek for help to wisely sow,
There’s a promise which will suit your ev’ry need! [Refrain]

3 In each hour of joy or sorrow, in temptation or distress,
God has said that he will be your strength indeed,
Search the Holy Word for guidance; it will help and cheer and bless,
There’s a promise which will suit your ev’ry need! [Refrain]
