We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 O take some precious promise
And rest thy soul therein,
Wait for thy Lord to meet thee there today;
For He His word hath given
Which ne’er hath broken been,
He always comes along that way.

He always comes along that way;
He always comes along that way;
Come rest upon His promise,
Ne’er doubt what it may say,
He always comes along that way.

2 Each promise is most precious,
And cheering to the soul,
For Jesus is the glory of its lay;
Whate’er He says He’s able—
E’en waves and winds control,
He always comes along that way. [Refrain]

3 When weary of earth’s trials,
When sorrows great oppress,
Go find the blessèd Lord without delay;
He’s promised to relieve thee
Of burdens and distress,
He always comes along that way. [Refrain]
