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 O’er my heart like music stealing,
Lo, the precious words I hear;
Trust and wait, in faith believing,
Thy Redeemer still is near.

Refrain:
Courage, then, O fainting spirit,
Courage, then, thro’ ev’ry care;
There’s a balm that will not fail thee
At the blessed gate of pray’r.

2 I will seek that balm of comfort
That so oft has stay’d my tears;
I will trust and wait with patience,
Till the promised light appears. [Refrain]

3 Thou, my Saviour, art my refuge;
Changeless as Thy throne above
Is the promise of Thy presence,
And Thy everlasting love. [Refrain]
