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

Representative Text

1 When darkest clouds o’erhang the way,
And threat’ning storms are heard,
Just rest upon the promises,
And take him at his word.

O take him at his word,
Yes, take him at his word;
‘Tis sweet to trust in Jesus’ name,
And take him at his word.

2 Tho’ evil hosts assail, and oft
Your heart with fear is stirred,
No evil can prevail, if you
Will take him at his word. [Refrain]

3 Your pray’rs ascend the throne of grace,
Although by men unheard;
There’s One who hears the pray’r of faith,
Then take him at his word. [Refrain]

4 He ready waits to fill the soul
With melody unheard;
Just cast your all upon the Lord,
And take him at his word. [Refrain]
