We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

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.
