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 Look up to Jesus and, with loving trust,
Keep singing, still singing;
He’ll safely guide us, he is wise and just;
Trust Jesus, the Saviour King.

Sing on thro’ sunny days,
Sing on in darken’d ways,
Sing, sing;
Sing on, his name is love;
Sing on, he reigns above;
Sing, sing.

2 Your song may cheer a heavy-laden heart,
Keep singing, still singing;
And stronger faith and brighter hope impart,
In Jesus, the Saviour King. [Refrain]

3 Forgetting not the blessings of the past,
Keep singing, still singing;
In summer bloom, or ‘mid the wintry blast,
Trust Jesus, the Saviour King. [Refrain]
