We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

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. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Wait on God and trust him

Representative Text

1 Wait on God, and trust Him through all thy days;
Cast thy cares upon Him who guides all thy ways.
Do not despair; as the morning fair
Scatters fog and darkness, God removes thy care.
’Midst all thy trials, in all thy care
God remains thy faithful friend everywhere.

2 Wait on God, and trust Him through all thy days;
Cast thy cares upon Him who guides all thy ways.
Perish what will, God is refuge still;
Greater than the Helper is not any ill.
Faithful, eternal Savior and Friend,
Save my soul from evil unto the end.

3 Wait on God, and trust Him through all thy days;
Cast thy cares upon Him who guides all thy ways.
Take up thy cross; count it not a loss,
For the heat of sorrow melts away the dross.
Jesus, dear Savior, patient and mild,
Let me be obedient, a trusting child.

4 Wait on God, and trust Him through all thy days;
Cast thy cares upon Him who guides all thy ways.
On bended knee, Lord, I cry to Thee;
Shield my soul from evil; to Thy cross I flee.
Gracious Redeemer, mighty and strong,
Let me sing rejoicing the victor’s song.
