Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

115. Call the Lord God Thy Salvation

1 Call the Lord God thy salvation;
rest beneath th'Almighty's shade;
in his secret habitation
dwell, and never be dismayed.
There no tumult shall alarm thee;
thou shalt dread no hidden snare;
guile nor violence can harm thee,
in eternal safeguard there.

2 From the sword at noonday wasting,
from the noisome pestilence,
in the depth of midnight blasting,
God shall be thy sure defence.
He shall charge his angel legions
watch and ward o'er thee to keep;
though thou walk through hostile regions,
though in desert wilds thou sleep.

3 Since, with pure and firm affection,
thou on God hast set thy love,
with the wings of his protection
he will shield thee from above:
thou shall call on him in trouble;
he will hearken, he will save;
here for grief reward thee double,
crown with life beyond the grave.
