We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Representative Text

1 In the shadow of His wings I am resting,
On the living word my hope is stayed;
In His all-atoning blood I am trusting,
All my burdens at His feet are laid.

In the shadow of His wings I am resting,
In this blessed shelter I will hide;
In the cleansing blood my soul will be trusting,
Till I reign in glory by His side.

2 In the shadow of His wings I am resting,
I have joy that ever shall abide;
Happy songs of faith I sing—ever knowing
I am saved because for me He died. [Refrain]

3 In the shadow of His wings I am resting,
I have peace the world can never give;
For the Comforter has come, softly whisp’ring,
“With the risen One thy soul shall live.” [Refrain]
