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 What shall I do when my way is all clouded,
When o’er my path shines no bright guiding ray;
All is obscure, and with darkness enshrouded,
Never a voice saying, This is the way.

Refrain:
Be silent to God! Still the voice of thy grieving;
Turn from thy thinking and agonized prayer.
Patiently wait, in His loving hands leaving
All of thy hopes, and thy burdens and care.

2 When hope deferred brings thy heart nigh to breaking,
With upward looking thine eyes seem to fail;
When thy poor heart has grown weary with aching,
And pow’rs of evil thy spirit assail. [Refrain]

3 Still then thy heart for the voice that would guide thee,
Hush every thought that His word you may hear.
Fear not the way, for whate’er may betide thee,
He will be with thee to help and to cheer. [Refrain]
