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 Like silver bells at eventide,
Out-ringing far o’er life’s rough sea;
To cheer my heart when tempest tried,
The voice of Jesus reaches me.

Like bells, sweet bells,
Sounding across life’s sea;
Like bells, sweet bells,
The voice of Jesus reaches me.

2 When dark the night upon the deep,
Imperiled tho’ my bark may be;
By raging storms that round me sweep,
His voice is strength and hope to me. [Refrain]

3 When battling with the surge of sin,
Tho’ waves of doubt around me beat;
The fight I cannot fail to win,
While He is near with love to greet. [Refrain]

4 When I might sink in deep despair,
Where only He can set me free;
My Saviour comes my load to bear,
His word is life and light to me. [Refrain]
