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

Full Text

1 He, who safely keepeth,
Slumbers not, nor sleepeth;
Tho’ by all the world forsaken,
Wherefore should I fear?
That which He hath spoken
Never can be broken;
Who shall harm the trusting heart
When He is near?

2 He will keep me ever,
Where no pow’r can sever
From my heart, the love that hides me,
In His secret place.
There in faith abiding,
All to Him confiding,
Thro’ His spirit I am seal’d
An heir of grace.

3 He will keep me ever;
Like a gentle river
Peace from Him, my Lord and Saviour,
Comes with joy to me;
In its quiet flowing,
Life and health bestowing,
Till within the gates of pearl
The King I see!
