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 After the storms have beat upon our pathway;
After the winds have hushed their awful blast;
Our little bark, tho’ tossed upon the billows,
Will safely reach the harbor-home at last.

O troubled heart, by faith look o’er the water,
Hope clears the mists, to yonder city’s dome,
Where in that land, no storm-clouds ever enter,
After life’s journey comes our home, sweet home.

2 How blest the thought that he, who is our Pilot
Will safely guide across life’s rolling sea,
And in the storm, with darkness all around us,
He sweetly speaks, “I’ll ever be with thee.” [Refrain]

3 ‘Twill not be long, the voyage will have ended,
And safe at home, upon that golden shore;
With those we love, throughout the countless ages
Will praise his name, who brought us safely o’er. [Refrain]
