Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

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

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.

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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure site.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

43. Primrose Hill

1. When I can read my title clear, To mansions in the skies, I’ll bid farewell to ev’ry fear, And wipe my weeping eyes. 2. Should earth against my soul engage, And fiery darts be hurled, Then I can smile at Satan’s rage, And face a frowning world. 3. Let cares, like a wild deluge, come, Let storms of sorrow fall, So I but safely reach my home, My God, my heav’n, my all. 4. There I shall bathe my weary soul In seas of heav’nly rest, And not a wave of trouble roll Across my peaceful breast.
