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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 Long you have pled at the throne of His grace,
Shed bitter tears in that sweet, hallowed place;
Yet, though it seem He is hiding His face,
Keep on praying, God will answer your prayer.

Refrain:
Keep on praying, keep on praying,
You shall have your reward sometime, somewhere;
Trust Him, believe, and thy guerdon* receive;
Keep on praying, God will answer your prayer.

2 Doubt not His love, nor His promise assail;
Only believe, for His word cannot fail;
“Ask what ye will,” and your plea shall avail,
Keep on praying, God will answer your prayer. [Refrain]

3 In His own time, in His own perfect way—
He knoweth best—it is thine to obey;
Though you receive no assurance today,
Keep on praying, God will answer your prayer. [Refrain]

4 Never despair, He is faithful and true;
Keep holding on, there is vict’ry for you;
All you can ask He is able to do—
Keep on praying, God will answer your prayer. [Refrain]
