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

1 Whatsoever be thy grief,
God will help thee to endure,
Only trust Him and believe,
All His promises are sure.

He will help thee, He will help thee,
Yield to Him and never fear;
Give Him all thy doubts and troubles,
He will all thy pleadings hear.

2 God will help thee evermore,
If thou trusting lift thine eyes,
He will bear thee safely o’er,
All that here thy spirit tries. [Refrain]

3 Let this promise cheer thy heart,
He will help and comfort thee,
Never let thy hope depart,
Evermore thy friend will be. [Refrain]

4 God will help thee day by day,
We can nevermore forget,
Though the shadows cloud thy way,
He will guard and guide thee yet. [Refrain]
