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

Full Text

1 When blinded are the eyes of faith
To God’s mysterious ways,
There’s light if we but backwards look
To behold the former days.

Refrain:
Remember the former days saith God
Remember the former days,
“For I am God, I am true to my word,”
Remember the former days.

2 Dry-shod God’s people crossed the sea
He fed them in the world,
His enemies in terror fled,
In the distant days of old. [Refrain]

3 When all the fields were brown and bare
And hearts of men in pain,
The windows of the skies God oped,
And sent refreshing rain. [Refrain]

4 The sons of righteousness he blest
And raised them upon on high,
And when they thought themselves forgot,
They found God’s presence nigh. [Refrain]

5 Our God is evermore the same
The same in love and pow’r,
And what he did in times of old
He will do this very hour. [Refrain]
