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 While foes are strong, and danger near,
A voice falls gently on my ear;
My Saviour speaks, he says to me,
That as my days, my strength shall be.

2 With such a promise need I fear
For all that now I hold most dear?
No: I will never anxious be,
For, as my days, my strength shall be.

3 When storms of trouble on me fall,
And when my cup is mixed with gall,
This promise will be sweet to me,
That as my days, my strength shall be.

4 And when, at last, I'm called to die,
Still on this promise I'll rely;
Yes, Lord, I then will trust in thee,
That as my days, my strength shall be.
