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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 When burdens of life seem too heavy to bear,
When storm-clouds are hiding in the blue,
O turn from the weight of your trouble and care,
And think of God’s promise to you!

Refrain:
Just think of God’s promise to you,
So faithful, so precious and true!
“I never will leave thee—no, never forsake!”
O think of God’s promise to you!

2 O look from the shadows to Jesus today,
And, striving his bidding to do,
Be mindful of blessings that brighten your way,
And think of God’s promise to you! [Refrain]

3 When seemeth in vain the good seed that you sow,
Remember bright sheaves you will view;
Then look for the sunshine, as onward you go,
And think of God’s promise to you! [Refrain]
