Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

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

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.

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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure site.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,
Harry Plantinga

Wait, My Soul, Upon Him

Full Text

1 Wait, my soul, upon Him;
Trust in His word;
He will surely help thee
Who thy plaint hath heard.
Be not afraid,
Neither be dismayed;
Strong is He and mighty,
He will lend thee aid;
Kind is thy Shepherd;
With staff and rod
He will quick sustain thee,
Thy Lord and God.

2 Wait, my soul, upon Him;
Trust in His word;
He will surely help thee
Who thy plaint hath heard.
Though dark the night,
Soon must dawn the light;
After gloomy winter
Waketh spring’s delight.
Strong the Deliv’rer,
Faithful His word;
Wait, my soul upon Him,
Thy God and Lord.
