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 sailing life’s sea I have nothing to fear,
Tho’ tempests are tossing me high,
If only the voice of my Saviour I hear:
“Come be of good cheer, it is I.”

Though trials my strength may defy,
For help unto Jesus I cry,
And when I am tempted or danger is near,
I’ll trust him and be of good cheer.

2 Tho’ fortune may fail me and health may decline,
Tho’ others turn back in dismay,
I’ll cling to my Saviour and never repine,
And he will not cast me away. [Refrain]

3 No dangers appall when my Saviour is near,
And when I am summoned on high,
My heart will rejoice if I only can hear
“Come, be of good cheer it is I.” [Refrain]
