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.

Representative Text

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."
