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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Above the tempest of the seas,
A voice of sweet command I hear;
The waves obey the word of peace,—
It is my Lord to me so dear.

Refrain:
It is my Lord,
It is my Lord,
His tender, loving voice I hear,
It is my Lord,
It is my Lord,
To me so dear, to me so dear.

2 When friends forsake, and foes assail,
I feel the sacred presence near,
Of One, who cannot, will not fail,—
It is my Lord to me so dear. [Refrain]

3 When bowed by some great sorrow deep,
A tender hand wipes ev’ry tear,
And faithful watch with me doth keep,—
It is my Lord to me so dear. [Refrain]

4 When darkest clouds have passed away,
The heavens shine serene and clear,
And songs of gladness fill the day,—
It is my Lord to me so dear. [Refrain]
