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 safely, safely sheltered
In His everlasting arm,
Made secure in Him forever
Where no foe can me alarm.

Ever sheltered, safely sheltered
In my Saviour’s love secure,
I rejoice in full salvation,
And my hope of heav’n is sure.

2 I am safely, safely sheltered,
Tho’ life’s storms around me roll,
For to God I have committed
All the keeping of my soul. [Refrain]

3 I am safely, safely sheltered,
And in Jesus feel secure,
For I have in Him salvation,
And an anchor steadfast, sure. [Refrain]
