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.

1 When the wintry winds are blowing,
Brightly shines this cheering ray—
In the land to which we’re going,
God shall wipe all tears away.

Refrain:
He’ll wipe all tears away,
He’ll wipe all tears away;
In that land to which we’re going,
God shall wipe all tears away.

2 He will help us thro’ our sorrow,
Be our comfort and our stay,
Till that sweet, eternal morrow,
When he’ll wipe all tears away. [Refrain]

3 All things work for good together;
Winds and waves his word obey;
After time’s uncertain weather,
He shall wipe all tears away. [Refrain]

4 Trust him, who hath freely given
Grace sufficient for the day;
Serve in gladness till, in heaven,
God shall wipe all tears away. [Refrain]
