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 my soul oft rises, bringing pain and woe,
The alarming question, “Am I saved or no?”
Then the Word brings comfort, it doth fully show,
Tho’ my faith may waver, Christ, the Rock, stands fast.

Refrain:
The Rock stands fast! the Rock stands fast!
Tho’ my faith may waver, Christ, the Rock, stands fast!
The Rock stands fast! the Rock stands fast!
Glory be to God! Christ, the Rock, stands fast!

2 When before me marshalled all my sins arise,
Swords of flame that bar the gates of paradise,
Tho’ oppressed with doubtings, still my soul replies,
“Tho’ my faith may waver, Christ, the Rock, stands fast.” [Refrain]

3 While life’s storm is raging, heaping up hope’s wrecks,
While delights allure and sore temptations vex,
I will cry, tho’ fears and doubts my soul perplex,
“Tho’ my faith may waver, Christ, the Rock, stands fast.” [Refrain]
