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

When times of trouble are at hand

When times of trouble are at hand

Representative Text

1 When times of troubles are at hand
The best that we can do,
Is to obey the Lord's command
And prove his promise true.

2 As gold is in the furnace tried
And cleans'd from filth and dross;
Thus we are purg'd and purified
by bearing Jesus' Cross.

3 We can't expect the crown to wear,
Which Christ in heav'n will give,
If we refuse the Cross to bear,
Whilst here on earth we live.

4 We must submit our cause to God,
And yield to do his will;
He lets us feel his chast'ning rod,
But grants his blessing still.

5 To be reproach'd for Jesus sake,
Proves him to be our Lord;
His Cross and suff'rings to partake,
Will have a great reward.

6 Then let us look beyond the grave
Where all our suff'rings cease;
Great, are the treasures we shall have
In everlasting peace.
