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, 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

Resting In You

Full Text

1 In the eye of the hurricane,
I find peace in the storm.
By trusting in You, Lord,
My soul is reborn.
Like a child in Your arms,
Safe and warm against the night,
You will bear me through the darkness,
Surrounded by Your light.

Resting in You, Lord,
Safe in Your arms,
Resting in You, Lord,
I am safe in Your arms.

2 Though the mountains may crumble,
And the sea roll away,
I know You are with me,
Through the night and the day.
For You’re right here inside me;
Yes, You live within my heart.
I’ve abandoned my life into
Your gentle, loving arms. [Refrain]

3 When my burdens grow heavy,
And I bend beneath the load,
Then Your strength will help me
Down the long, dusty road.
All my trials and tribulations,
They can only make me strong.
For You lift my soul with gladness,
And fill my heart with song. [Refrain]
