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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 How dear to my heart, when the pathway is lonely,
That wonderful promise of Jesus my Lord,
That message of mercy, of love and compassion,
I read on the page of His own blessed Word:

Refrain:
Fear not! I am with thee
Thy Strength and Redeemer,
The Rock where in safety
My own shall abide;
I will never forsake thee
My word hath declared it;
I will not forsake thee, whatever betide.

2 When chilled by the waves that are surging around me,
And clouds of affliction like billows may roll,
I’ll cling to His Word, which can never be broken,
And joy in the comfort it brings to my soul. [Refrain]

3 Though tried in the furnace, my faith shall not falter,
But, trusting in Jesus, the Cross I will bear;
And hoping, enduring, believing, obeying,
I’ll cling to His promise, and rest in His care. [Refrain]
