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.

Hide me, Lord, in thy pavilion

Representative Text

1 Hide me, Lord, in Thy pavilion!
From proud men Thy servant hide;
In Thy tabernacle’s secret
Let my soul by grace abide.
When my cords are strained to breaking,
And my curtains riven far,
Be my tent, and in Thy covert
Keep me from the tempest’s war.

2 Hide me, Lord, in Thy pavilion!
From men’s tongues Thy servant hide;
Still their strife and my confusion
In love’s calm and mighty tide.
When across my hush of wonder
Falls the terror of the flood,
Stretch Thy love—a tent with curtains
Set for everlasting good.

3 Hide me, Lord, in Thy pavilion!
From the glare of noonday hide;
And from fear of cloud and darkness
With Thine hand of mercy guide.
When I may not go in safety,
Thou shalt hover where I stay;
So at length, in Thee pavilioned,
I shall tent on Love’s Highway.
