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.

Representative Text

1 Firm as a rock I will cling to my Savior!
He is my hope where’er I may be;
O what a joy and peace in believing
There is a home preparing for me.

My longing eyes by faith behold,
The gates of pearl, the streets of gold;
With Christ my Lord I there shall be,
And wear the crown laid up for me.

2 Firm as a rock I will cling to my Savior!
Walking with Him no danger I fear;
How can I want when He is my Shepherd,
How can I fall when He is so near? [Refrain]

3 Firm as a rock I will cling to my Savior!
Praising His word, adoring His love;
Praising His name whose infinite mercy
Leadeth my soul to mansions above. [Refrain]

4 Firm as a rock I will cling to my Savior!
Nearer He brings my dwelling so fair;
Angels of light are waving me onward;
Glory to God, my treasure is there. [Refrain]
