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

A very present help in trouble

Representative Text

1 A good ship, a burning wreck
Drifted on the ocean wide;
Those who once had trod her deck
Battling now the waters, cried:
“Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee.”

2 Sinking ‘neath the rolling deep,
In the wide and treachrous main;
Faith alone could sing so sweet,
Pleadingly the hopeful strain:
“Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee.”

3 Strong in faith, on Christ they call,
Helpless on the billowy sea;
Singing as they rise and fall,
Ever this their only plea:
“Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee.”

4 Waves nor flame can ne’er devour
Those who call on Jesus’ name;
Trusting His almighty pow’r,
While they sing this sweet refrain:
“Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee.”
