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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 I am held by God’s right hand,
Roll, billows, rill!
I fear naught on sea or land, so
Roll, billows, rill!

Roll, billows, rill!
Roll, billows, rill,
Jesus is my anchor and He’ll keep my soul from ev’ry foe;
So roll, billows, Roll,
Roll, billows, rill!
Jesus is my anchor and He’ll keep my soul.

2 What care I for rock or shoal?
Roll, billows, rill!
All God’s host surround my soul, so
Roll, billows, rill! [Refrain]

3 Tho’ what Satan should assail,
Roll, billows, rill!
In God’s might I shall prevail, so
Roll, billows, rill! [Refrain]

4 Oh, that you, my friend, could say
“Roll, billows, rill!
Christ is keeping me each day, so
Roll, billows, rill!” [Refrain]
