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 Looking to Jesus, how can we stray?
Has He not promised to guide us alway?
Tho’ foes assail us, strong in His might,
Jesus is reigning, all will be right.

All will be right, yes, all will be right,
Kept by the Master, all will be right;
Tho’ foes assail, truth shall prevail;
Jesus is reigning, all will be right.

2 Clouds may obscure the light of His face,
Still we’ll go forward, and trust in His grace;
Walking in faith, e’en darkness is light;
Jesus is reigning, all will be right. [Refrain]

3 Firm as the Christ-rock, safe evermore,
Death’s sullen waters about us may roar,
Heav’n’s day is dawning—farewell the night;
Jesus is reigning, all will be right. [Refrain]

Lizzie De Armond was a prolific writer of children's hymns, recitations and exercises. When she was twelve years old her first poem was published in the Germantown, Pa. Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
