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

1 I trust in God wherever I may be,
Upon the land or on the rolling sea;
For come what may,
from day to day,

My heav’nly Father watches over me.
I trust in God, I know He cares for me,
On mountain bleak or on the stormy sea;
Though billows roll,
He keeps my soul,
My heavn’ly Father watches over me.

2 He makes the rose an object of His care,
He guides the eagle through the pathless air;
And surely He
remembers me, [Refrain]

3 I trust in God, for, in the lion’s den,
On battlefield, or in the prison pen;
Through praise or blame,
through flood or flame, [Refrain]

4 The valley may be dark, the shadows deep,
But oh, the shepherd guards His lonely sheep;
And through the gloom,
He’ll lead me home, [Refrain]
