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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 Tho’ weary and discouraged,
And troubles pave the way,
Take up the little duties,
And do your best each day;
Look ever unto Jesus,
Be loyal, brave and true,
O do not disappoint Him,
Your Saviour counts on you.

Your Saviour counts on you,
Be loyal, brave and true;
O do not disappoint Him,
Your Saviour counts on you.

2 God gives to each a message,
Some truth the world should know,
Be pure in heart and purpose,
And live it as you go;
The Lord will be your helper,
There’s work for you to do,
O do not disappoint Him,
Your Saviour counts on you. [Refrain]

3 In trials and temptations
You’ll find Him always nigh,
Seek not in self to glory,
But lift the Christ on high;
Look up to God’s dear heaven,
And ev’ry vow renew,
O do not disappoint Him,
Your Saviour counts on you. [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.
