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 O troubled heart, be thou not afraid,
In the Lord thy God, let thy hope be stayed;
He will hear thy cry and will give thee aid,
Whate'er thy cross may be.

Chorus:
He is able still to deliver thee,
And His own right hand thy defence shall be:
He is able still to deliver thee,
Then be thou not afraid.

2 O troubled heart, tho' thy foes unite,
Let thy faith be strong and thy armor bright;
Thou shalt overcome thro' His pow'r and might,
And more than conqueror be. [Chorus]

3 O troubled heart, when thy way is drear,
He will rescue thee and dispel thy fear;
In thy greatest need He is alway near,--
To Him all glory be. [Chorus]
