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.
1 Behold, a stone in Zion laid,
A tried, a sure foundation stone;
Thrice blest are they whose hopes are staid
Upon this base, and this alone.
Some build their hopes on the ever-drifting sand,
Some on their fame, or their treasure, or their land;
Mine's on a Rock that forever will stand,
Jesus, the "Rock of Ages."
2 Storms may arise, and tempests blow,
And beat with fury on this Rock,
Still it remains, though waves o'erflow,
Unmoved amid the fiercest shock. [Refrain]
3 Ne'er shall the gates of hell prevail
O'er those who in the Lord abide;
Safely they dwell, though foes assail,
Forever near the Savior's side. [Refrain]Source: The Christian Sunday School Hymnal: a compilation of choice hymns and tunes for Sunday schools #127
