Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Please, before you close this box, would you today consider making a donation to Hymnary. Did you know that more than two million people came here in the first four months of 2017? These are people who have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site, and they are grateful for the resources they find here.

But, as you can imagine, keeping this site going 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 through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team, thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 When waves of affliction sweep over the soul,
And sunlight is hidden from view,
If ever you’re tempted to fret or complain,
Just think of His goodness to you.

Refrain:
Just think of His goodness to you;
Yes, think of His goodness to you;
Though storms o’er thee sweep,
He is able to keep;
O think of His goodness to you.

2 The world may forsake you, and those whom you trust
May prove to be false and untrue;
There’s One you can trust even unto the end;
Just think of His goodness to you. [Refrain]

3 Misfortune’s dark cloud my hang over the way,
Despite your best efforts to do;
The Savior is guarding your treasures up there;
Just think of His goodness to you. [Refrain]

4 When dear ones are taken away from you here,
You loved with affection so true,
Look unto the savior for strength to endure,
And think of His goodness to you. [Refrain]
