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 Christ is courage, hope and health,
Wisdom, power, greatness, wealth;
Fount of life and light of love,
Spring of joy, all joys above.
Christ is power, Christ is peace,
Christ is sorrow’s sure release;
Master, Teacher, Shepherd, King—
Yes, our Christ is ev’ry thing.
2 Christ is comfort, calm and rest;
Bloom that makes the desert blest;
Cooling shade by wayside warm,
Rock of refuge in the storm. [Refrain]
3 Christ is Friend and help and home,
Wand’ring with us when we roam;
Camping round us by the way,
Comrade on the field of fray. [Refrain]
4 Christ is shelter, buckler, shield,
Mighty, tho’ all else may yield;
Vainly pierces death’s keen dart
Through the Christ, to reach my heart. [Refrain]Source: The King of Glory #145
