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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

On the Good and Faithful

Representative Text

1 On the good and faithful
God has set His love;
When they call He sends them
Blessings from above.
Stand in awe, and sin not,
Bid your heart be still;
Through the silent watches
Think upon His will.

2 Lay upon God's altar
Good and loving deeds,
And in all things trust Him
To supply your needs.
Anxious and despairing,
Many walk in night;
But to those that fear Him
God will send His light.

3 In God's love abiding,
I have joy and peace
More than all the wicked,
Though their wealth increase.
In His care confiding,
I will sweetly sleep,
For the Lord, my Saviour,
Will in safety keep.
