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.

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

Full 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]
