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

398. Hide Me

1 Keep me as the apple of Thine eye,
Joyful in the glory pardon brings;
Help me, Lord, to trust Thee, though I die,
Hide me in the shadow of Thy wings.

Refrain:
Hide me in the shadow of Thy wings,
Hide me till this stormy life is o’er;
Hide me in the shadow of Thy wings,
Hide me, Savior, hide me evermore.

2 Keep me as the apple of Thine eye,
Unto Thee by faith my spirit clings;
Help me at Thy feet to passive lie,
Hide me in the shadow of Thy wings. [Refrain]

3 Keep me as the apple of Thine eye,
From the awful blight of sinful things;
Firmly on Thy promise I rely,
Hide me in the shadow of Thy wings. [Refrain]

4 Keep me as the apple of Thine eye,
While my faith in full assurance sings;
Victory as upward I shall fly,
Covered with the shadow of Thy wings. [Refrain]
