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 Hark! hark! there’s a cry from the deep,
A soul is singing, arise from your sleep!
Will no one save, no life-boat at hand?
No one have strength to bring him to land?
No one have strength to bring him to land?

Refrain:
Hark! hark! O hear the sad cry;
Hark! hark! to the help quickly fly!
Arouse! arouse! arouse!
O hasten to help him before he shall die.

2 Help! help! the sad cry comes once more,
He’s struggling and battling to gain the shore;
How the waves thrash and wild billows roll,
Can no one save this perishing soul?
Can no one save this perishing soul? [Refrain]

3 Th’life-boat with Christ at the helm,
Is ready; the billows no longer o’erwhelm;
The waves divide at His blessed will,
Their terrors cease at His whisper, “be still,”
Their terrors cease at His whisper, “be still.” [Refrain]

4 Come in this life-boat and live,
With Jesus who suffered and His life did give,
That thou’d be saved from danger and woe,
Take Him for you guide wherever you go,
Take Him for you guide wherever you go. [Refrain]
