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

Wait, My Soul, Upon Him

Representative 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.
