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 In a weary land I wander,
And with falt’ring steps I walk;
But I soon shall rest up yonder
In the shadow of the Rock.

Refrain:
In the shadow of the Rock,
In the shadow of the Rock,
I will soon be resting yonder
In the shadow of the Rock.

2 Here my toils are unabating,
And rude cares about me mock;
But my rest is yonder waiting
In the shadow of the Rock. [Refrain]

3 In these pastures fair and vernal,
With my Shepherd’s chosen flock
I shall feast on joys eternal
In the shadow of the Rock. [Refrain]

4 By these waters gently flowing,
I shall fear n tempest’s shock,
And no want or grief be knowing
In the shadow of the Rock. [Refrain]

5 So with patient faith I’ll wander,
And with loving trust will walk,
For I’ll soon be resting yonder
In the shadow of the Rock. [Refrain]
