Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 The trusting heart goes singing,
Whatever may betide,
To Jesus’ promise clinging,
Redeemer, Friend, and Guide.

Singing, singing,
The trusting heart goes singing;
Taking Jesus at His word,
Following where His call is heard,
The trusting heart goes singing, singing, singing.

2 The trusting heart is ready
To do the Master’s will,
With purpose true and steady,
His bidding to fulfill. [Refrain]

3 The trusting heart with gladness
Receives all heav’nly gifts;
In days of grief and sadness,
The song of hope it lifts. [Refrain]
