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, 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 Wait! patiently wait, God never is late:
Thy budding plans are in Thy Father’s holding,
And only wait His grand divine unfolding;
Then wait, wait, patiently wait.

2 Trust! hopefully trust! That God will adjust
Thy tangled life: And from its dark concealings
Will bring His will in all its bright revealings;
Then trust, trust, hopefully trust.

3 Rest! peacefully rest! On His loving breast:
Breathe in His ear Thy sacred, high ambition
And He will bring it forth in blest fruition.
Then rest, rest, peacefully rest!
