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

1 My Father’s hand is clasped in mine,
I’m holding fast;
Unto His promises divine,
I’m holding fast;
For what can part me from His love,
Nor depth below nor height above;
And from His care can naught remove,
I’m holding fast.

Refrain:
I’m holding fast to my Father’s hand,
I’ll love Him ever
And naught shall sever whate’er betide,
I’m holding fast to my Father’s hand;
My faith in Him shall never fail,
I’m holding fast.

2 Unto His word that stands for aye,
I’m holding fast;
Till heav’n and earth shall pass away,
I’m holding fast;
For as a rock and refuge sure,
Thro’ ages long it shall endure;
And so I rest, serene, secure,
I’m holding fast. [Refrain]

3 Unto the hope that He has giv’n,
I’m holding fast
Unto the peace that comes from heav’n
I’m holding fast;
My faith in Him shall never fail,
My anchor holds within the vail;
To Him who ever shall prevail,
I’m holding fast. [Refrain]
