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 Tho’ the foes of right oppress,
Keep on praying;
Christ, the Lord, is near to bless,
All prevailing.
Let not fear your heart appall,
Naught of evil can befall,
Stronger is your God than all;
Keep on praying.

Keep on praying,
Keep on praying,
Thro’ the Savior’s blessèd name,
All prevailing.

2 Christian, has your faith grown weak?
Keep on praying;
Do the tears roll down your cheek?
Keep on praying.
Soon you never more will sigh,
Tears no more shall dim your eye,
Pray to Him who’s always nigh,
Never failing. [Refrain]

3 Pilgrim, have you weary grown?
Keep on praying,
God is yet upon His throne,
Keep on praying.
He will hear your faithful cry,
He to help is ever nigh,
You shall conquer by and by,
Keep on praying. [Refrain]

4 Praises shall with prayers ascend
Keep on praying;
Pray and praise till life shall end,
Keep on praying.
Till you reach the golden gate,
Where the ransomed souls await,
Claiming there your triumph great,
Keep on praying. [Refrain]
