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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Loving Saviour, kind and gentle,
Thou our hope and refuge art;
Troubles spiritual and mental
Still assail each vital part.
Thou, O Saviour, from the manger,
To the cruel, bitter cross;
Sufferedst the pain and danger,
That our lives upheave and toss.

2 Impotent are we in weakness,
Tempted oft, we often fall;
But our Saviour, in Thy meekness,
Thou hast met and conquered all.
Help us, Saviour, by Thy power,
Thou, O Lord, art all our trust;
Make the enemy to cower,
Shrink before Thee like the dust.

3 Thou hast bought our soul’s redemption,
Thou hast drain’d the bitter cup;
From the tempter grant exemption;
Lord protect and lift us up.
Jesus, in the night of sorrow,
Guide us by Thy loving hand;
Lead us to the dawning morrow,
With the pure to take our stand.
