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.

Representative Text

1 Tempted just as we are was our blessed Lord,
Every pain we suffer finds an answering chord,
By His life of struggle He can understand,
We can never falter, holding fast His hand.

Tempted, tempted, Christ our Lording Friend,
Struggling, toiling, to the bitter end,
Tempted just as we are, well He knows our frame,
Gives us strength to conquer in His name.

2 Unto blood resisting; to the bitter end,
Stronger than the strongest is our dearest Friend,
IN His strength our shelter, in His love our shield,
Though a host assail us we will never yield. [Refrain]

3 Tempted just as we are, He has learned life’s ways,
Hope He gives and courage, for the trying days.
Every note for longing, every human cry,
Jesus hears and answers, from His home on high. [Refrain]

Lizzie De Armond was a prolific writer of children's hymns, recitations and exercises. When she was twelve years old her first poem was published in the Germantown, Pa. Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
