Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 ’Tis sweet to trust in Jesus,
When dark temptation’s near,
When Satan waits to win us,
His gentle voice to hear.
To feel, tho’ heavy laden,
Jesus was tempted, too,
But, in His strength victorious,
We may our way pursue.

2 ’Tis sweet to trust in Jesus,
Whatever may betide,
To know thro’ life’s dark warfare,
He’s ever at our side.
Tho’ clouds may thickly gather,
And all the heavens fill,
To know that close behind them
The sun is shining still.

3 ’Tis sweet to know that Jesus
Supports the dying head,
And o’er death’s chilly waters,
By Him we shall be led.
That in His home of glory
A mansion is prepared,
By Him who died to save us,
If we’ve His sufferings shared.
