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 In the darkest hour of sorrow, never, never fear;
For the tender, loving Saviour will be ever near;
He will lead thee, safely lead thee, thro’ the night of gloom,
To the land of light and promise, far beyond the tomb.

Chorus:
Never fear, never fear,
In the darkest hour of sorrow never fear, never fear;
Never fear, never fear,
For the tender, loving Saviour will be ever near.

2 Tho’ the saves should overwhelm thee, He will hold thy hand;
Thou shalt reach the distant haven, reach the better land;
O the blessed, blessed promise, thro’ all good and ill,
Light and gladness, night and sadness, He is with thee still. [Chorus]
