Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 Dark are the waters before me,—
Loud is the voice of the gale;
Storm-cloud and tempest are o’er me,
Boatman! oh, list to my hail.

Refrain:
Carry me over the tide,
Dark are the waters, and deep and wide;
Yonder, just over the sea,
My mansion is waiting for me.

2 Onward I move o’er the waters,
Lurid the lightning’s fierce glare,
Angry the surges beneath me,—
Boatman! lo, danger is there. [Refrain]

3 Peril is in the dark waters,—
Safety beyond the deep wave;
Father! oh, let me not perish—
Thou who are mighty to save. [Refrain]

4 Ah, when the voyage is over,
There, on that beautiful shore,
Safely beyond the dark waters,
Joy shall be mine forevermore. [Refrain]
