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

Representative Text

1 Cling close to the Rock, brother, danger is near;
Cling close to thy Saviour, and doubt not, nor fear;
For Jesus will hold thee, almighty to save,
Thy Jesus, who triumphed o'er death and the grave.

Cling close to the Rock, tho' the tempest may shock,
Assured of salvation in Jesus the Rock.

2 Cling close to the Rock, brother, closely to-day,
Ere waves of temptation shall sweep thee away;
Cling close to the Rock in the time of thy grief,
For Jesus brings speedy and precious relief. [Refrain]

3 Cling close to the Rock, brother, close to the Rock,
Tho' tempests may rage and tho' billows may shock;
For Jesus the Saviour, thy Refuge, thy Friend,
In mercy hath loved thee, and loves to the end. [Refrain]
