Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat 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 by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

332. Why should I be affrighted

1.
Why should I be affrighted
At pestilence and war,
The fiercer be the tempest,
The sooner it is o'er
(Repeat previous line twice)
(Repeat previous 2 lines)

2.
With Jesus in the vessel,
The billows rise in vain,
They only will convey me
To yon Elysian plains,
(Repeat previous line twice)
(Repeat previous 2 lines)

3.
This world is full of dangers,
And foes that press me hard;
But Jesus he has promised
That he will be my guard.
(Repeat previous line twice)
(Repeat previous 2 lines)

4.
Here I shall not be tempted
Above what I can bear,
When fightings are exerted,
His kingdom for to share.
(Repeat previous line twice)
(Repeat previous 2 lines)

5.
From him I have my orders,
And while I do obey,
I find his Holy Spirit
Illuminates my way.
(Repeat previous line twice)
(Repeat previous 2 lines)

6.
The way is so delightful,
I wish to travel on,
Till I arrive at heaven,
To receive a starry crown.
(Repeat previous line twice)
(Repeat previous 2 lines)
