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 safe in the Rock that is higher than I;
This my refuge thro’ storms e’er shall be;
Tho’ my frail bark is tossed on the billows’ mad foam,
Yet I’m sheltered forever in Thee.

Sheltered in Thee, sheltered in Thee,
O Thou blest Rock of Ages,
I am sheltered in Thee.

2 I am safe in the Cleft that was riven for me;
From the pow’r of the tempter I’m free;
Tho’ my path way be dark, and the storms sweep the sky,
Yet securely I’m sheltered in Thee. [Refrain]

3 I am safe in the Rock let whatever betide;
Death and hell have no terror to me,
I can walk without fear thro’ the shadowy vale,
For securely I’m sheltered in Thee. [Refrain]
