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 Inside the door, O safe retreat,
From stormy winds that fiercely beat,
From tempest waves that rise and swell,
Inside the door, here all is well.

Inside the door, oh, praise the Lord,
Exalt His name with one accord,
He is the door, He saves from sin,
And shelters all that enter in;
And so I now the theme repeat,
Inside the door, O safe retreat.

2 Inside the door, O blessed calm,
I feel a touch of heaven’s balm;
And here my soul doth sweetly rest,
As I repose on Jesus’ breast. [Refrain]

3 Inside the door, oh, let me stay,
Nor let me wander far away;
For in God’s house I would abide,
Therein my soul is satisfied. [Refrain]

4 Inside the door, O Lord, I pray,
Let me abide from day to day;
Close by Thy side within the fold,
That I Thy beauty may behold. [Refrain]
