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 Daylight is past, Shadows are cast
Over the sea and land;
Down in the glade, Night’s peaceful shade
Lieth so near at hand.
Full are the notes we’ve drawn to shore,
Joy’s measure pressed to overflow;
The reefs are passed, the tempest’s roar
Sinks to a whisper low.

Refrain:
Then, tho’ the tide be swift and wide,
Naught can we fear on life’s wild sea;
To Thee we raise our songs of praise,
Pilot of Galilee.

2 Once down our path The storm of wrath
Lashed the wild foaming wave;
Darkness and dread Gathered o’erhead,
No human arm could save.
Drifting and lost, we heard with fear
The breakers roar where rocks did hide,
Till thro’ the gloom our souls could hear,
“Lo, I will be Thy guide.” [Refrain]

3 O Helmsman true, Thy voyage thro’
May we put trust Thy hand!
Thine are the isles Where pleasure smiles,
Thine the fair Beulah land.
Each strange, new morn unveils the way
To unknown seas where we must go;
Thou who didst guide thro’ yesterday,
Tomorrow’s path dost know. [Refrain]
