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, 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

1 As flows the river, calm and deep,
In silence toward the sea,
So floweth ever,
And ceaseth never,
The love of God for me.

As flows the river, calm and deep,
In silence toward the sea,
So floweth ever, and ceaseth never,
The love of God to me.

2 He kindly keepeth those He loves,
Secure from every fear.
From the eye that weepeth
For one that sleepeth,
He gently dries the tear. [Refrain]

3 What peace He bringeth to my heart,
Deep as the soundless sea.
How sweetly singeth
The soul that clingeth
My loving Lord, to Thee. [Refrain]

4 How calm at even sinks the sun
Beyond the clouded west;
So, tempest driven into the haven,
I reach the longed for rest. [Refrain]
