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 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]
