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.

1 Rejoice and be glad, all ye faithful,
Who trust and who wait on the Lord;
Rejoice, for His grace shall sustain you;
Abundant shall be your reward.
Tho’ trials may often assail you,
And though you afflicted may be.
Rejoice, He is mighty to save you;
His goodness and love you shall see.

Refrain:
Rejoice and be glad, all ye faithful,
Who trust and who wait on the Lord;
Rejoice, for His grace shall sustain you;
Abundant shall be your reward.

2 Then onward, press onward, nor ever
Grow weary, tho’ sorrows befall,
And dark be the way to His palace,
For Jesus is guiding through all;
He knows when our sad hearts are burdened,
And pities each one in His fold.
IN tender compassion and mercy,
His sweet words of comfort are told. [Refrain]

3 He owns us, and calls us His children;
To Him, to our blest Saviour King,
Be thanks and be glory for ever;
His goodness we joyfully sing.
And then, in the transport of rapture,
In heaven we’d worship the One.
Who calls every one to His kingdom,
And guides till life’s labors are done. [Refrain]
