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.

322. Call Jehovah Your Salvation

1 Call Jehovah your salvation,
Rest beneath th' Almighty's shade,
In his secret habitation
Dwell, nor ever be dismayed:
There no tumult can alarm you,
You shall dread no hidden snare;
Guile nor violence can harm you,
In eternal safeguard there.

2 From the sword at noonday wasting,
From the noisome pestilence,
In the depth of midnight blasting,
God shall be your sure defense:
He shall charge his angel legions
Watch and ward o'er thee to keep;
Though you walk through hostile regions,
Though in desert wilds you sleep.

3 Since, with pure and firm affection,
You on God hast set your love,
With the wings of his protection
He will shield you from above:
You shall call on him in trouble,
He will hearken, he will save;
Here for grief reward you double,
Crown with life beyond the grave.
