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.

Great God, defend us in this storm

Great God, defend us in this storm

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Great God defend us in this storm,
What blasts and thunder roar!
Since thou canst keep m life from harm
In this tremendous hour.

2 Alarming thus to view the skies,
Such gloomy aspects wear;
The fearful lightning darts and flies,
And dazzles all the air.

3 Dear Lord this casts my spirits down,
When thus it is the case;
To hear such threats and see such frowns,
In this alarmed place.

4 Much more my soul should feel afraid.
Yea, I should quite despair'
Was not my hopes on Jesus stay'd,
Who guards me ev'ry where.

5 When Satan with his storms prevail,
aAnd tries his art and power;
Let not my trust in Jesus fail,
Nor give up evermore!
