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 There are precious promises,
Rays of heav’nly light,
Shining on our pathway here,
Breaking through the night.

O the precious promises!
Take them while you may;
Great and precious promises,
Free and full today.

2 There are precious promises,
Riches all divine,
Gems of rarest beauty seen,
Gold from deepest mine. [Refrain]

3 There are precious promises,
Bread for all who need,
Plenty from the stores above,
Starving souls to fee. [Refrain]
