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.

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.
