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. We hope in Thee, O God!
The day wears on to night;
Thick shadows lie across our world,
In Thee alone is light.

2. We hope in Thee, O God!
The fading time is here,
But Thou abidest strong and true
Though all things disappear.

3. We hope in Thee, O God!
Our joys go one by one,
But lonely hearts can rest in Thee,
When all beside is gone.

4. We hope in Thee, O God!
Hope fails us otherwhere;
But since Thou art in all that is,
Peace takes the hand of care.

5. We hope in Thee, O God!
In whom none hope in vain;
We cling to Thee in love and trust,
And joy succeeds to pain.
