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 will not be afraid at night,
When all alone I lie,
And darkness takes the place of light;
For God is nigh.

2 His shelt’ring arm supports my head,
And lovingly He keeps
A constant watch around my bed;
God never sleeps.

3 I will not be afraid to hear
The rolling tempest wild,
If Jesus whisper in my ear,
I am His child.

4 I will not be afraid to tread
The portals of the tomb,
For Jesus there a light will shed
To cheer the gloom.
