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

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]
