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, 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. Leave the future to our Father,
Trust Him still to care for thee;
Living bravely in the present,
As He gives thee light to see.

All thy days are in His keeping,
Be they dark or be they fair,
And He watches, never sleeping,
Holds thee in His tender care.

2. Take thy life as He may give it,
For He knoweth what is best;
Every day shall show thee duty,
Every night gives sweetest rest. [Refrain]

3. He will teach thee all thou needest,
Guidance give from day to day;
In the sunshine or the shadows,
Look to Him, for He’s the way. [Refrain]
