Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1. I stood face to face with a sorrow,
That threatened my bark to o’erwhelm,
But peace floated in in the morrow,
My Father was guiding the helm.
My Father was guiding the helm,
My Father was guiding the helm,
But peace floated in in the morrow,
My Father was guiding the helm.

2. I rode o’er a tempest rocked billow,
Which threatened my life to o’erwhelm,
But I sweetly slept on my pillow,
My Father was guiding the helm.
My Father was guiding the helm,
My Father was guiding the helm,
But I sweetly slept on my pillow,
My Father was guiding the helm.

3. O’er my soul death’s shadows were creeping,
That threatened my faith to o’erwhelm,
But the angels a vigil were keeping,
My Father was guiding the helm.
My Father was guiding the helm,
My Father was guiding the helm,
But the angels a vigil were keeping,
My Father was guiding the helm.
