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 Marvel not when friends forsake you,
For the world is ever vain;
Only seeking sinful pleasures
And the joys of earthly gain.

Refrain:
Marvel not whate’er befall you,
Trust the Savior all the way,
For one day He’ll bear you safely
To the realms of brightest day.

2 Marvel not, oh! unbeliever,
If your way is rough and bare;
Marvel not, for without Jesus,
You no holy joys shall share. [Refrain]

3 Marvel not that Satan’s power
Can allure a soul to strife;
Keep your own heart fixed on Jesus,
And you’ll win eternal life. [Refrain]
