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

Brother, on the troubled deep

Brother, on the troubled deep

Author: Hannah E. Breadbury
Published in 11 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Brother, on the troubled deep,
When the wild winds round you sweep,
And the waves in madness leap,
Listen, 'tis the voice that said,--
It is I, be not afraid.

2 When the storm has died away,
And the sun, with cheering ray,
Now illumes your prosperous way,
Trust, oh, trust in him who said,--
It is I, be not afraid.

3 Brother, far away from home,
Restless as the wave's light foam,
When temptations round you come,
Pray for strength to him who said,--
It is I, be not afraid.

4 Brother, when death draweth near,
And your spirit shrinks in fear
From its portals damp and drear,
Trust your soul to him who said,--
It is I, be not afraid.
