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 Life lies before me,
Naught in it can I control,
So I give it in His keeping,
The Lord Jesus of my soul;
So I give it in His keeping,
The Lord Jesus of my soul.
I’ll trust whate’er befall,
I’ll trust Him thro’ it all.

2 Sorrow lies before me;
Friends are precious to console,
But He surpasses all in comfort,
The Lord Jesus of my soul;
But He surpasses all in comfort,
The Lord Jesus of my soul.
I’ll trust whate’er befall,
I’ll trust Him thro’ it all.

3 Darkness lies before me;
I cannot see the goal,
I can only hold fast trusting—
The Lord Jesus of my soul;
I can only hold fast trusting—
The Lord Jesus of my soul.
I’ll trust whate’er befall,
I’ll trust Him thro’ it all.

4 Vict’ry lies before me!
Satan shall not have control,
For He’s stronger than the tempter,
The Lord Jesus of my soul;
For He’s stronger than the tempter,
The Lord Jesus of my soul.
I’ll trust whate’er befall,
I’ll trust Him thro’ it all.

5 Joy lies before me!
For His grace doth keep me whole;
And my heart shall e’er keep praising,
The Lord Jesus of my soul;
And my heart shall e’er keep praising,
The Lord Jesus of my soul.
I’ll trust whate’er befall,
I’ll praise Him thro’ it all.
