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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Love Abideth

Faith, the rock on which we firmly rest

Author: Helen L. Dungan
Tune: [Faith, the rock on which we firmly rest]
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 Faith, the rock on which we firmly rest,
And hope, the anchor to the golden shore,--
In these we find our comfort here be low,
But love abideth evermore.

Faith is the Christian's rock
And hope the anchor true;
These cheer us on our way thro' gloomy vales.
Both faith and hope may pass
With things of earth away,
But love abides; it never, never fails.

2 Faith, the star to which we look for peace,
And hope, the light it shows our pathway o'er,--
In these we find our guidance thro' life's way,
But love abideth evermore. [Refrain]

3 Faith will lead us to our home on high,
And hope will guide us to the open door;
By these we find our mansion in the sky,
But love abideth evermore. [Refrain]
