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.

Representative Text

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]
