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,

1 In some way or other the Lord will provide,
It may not be my way,
It may not be thy way,
And yet in his own way, "the Lord will provide."

2 At some time or other the Lord will provide;
It may not be my time,
It may not be thy time,
And yet in his own time, "The Lord will provide."

3 Despond then no longer, the Lord will provide;
And this be the token
No word he hath spoken
Was ever yet broken, "the Lord will provide."

4 March on, then, right boldly; the sea shall divide;
The path shall be glorious;
With shoutings victorious
We'll join in the chorus, "the Lord will provide."
