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

Cheer Thee, Sad Soul

God is near thee, Therefore cheer thee

Tune: GOD IS NEAR THEE
Published in 20 hymnals

Full Text

1 God is near thee,
Therefore cheer thee,
Sad soul, sad soul;
He'll defend thee,
When around thee
Billows roll, billows roll.

2 Calm thy sadness,
Look in gladness,
On high, on high;
Faint and weary
Pilgrim cheer thee,
Help is nigh, help is nigh.

3 Mark the seabird
Wildly wheeling,
Thro' skies, thro' skies;
God defends him,
God attends him
When he cries, when he cries.

4 Therefore cheer thee,
God is near thee,
Sad soul, sad soul;
In thy blindness,
Trust his kindness,
When storms roll o'er thy soul.
