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 Hymnary.org, 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

Refrain:
O rocks, don't fall on me,
O rocks, don't fall on me,
O rocks, don't fall on me,
Rocks and mountains, don't fall on me.

1 Look over yonder on Jerichos' wall,
Rocks and mountains, don't fall on me;
And see those sinners tremble and fall,
Rocks and mountains, don't fall on me. [Refrain]

2 In-a that great, great judgment-day,
Rocks and mountains, don't fall on me'
The sinners will run to the rocks and say,
"Rocks and mountains, please fall on me."

O rocks, please fall on me!
O rocks, please fall on me!
O rocks, please fall on me!
Rocks and mountains, please fall on me!

3 When every star refuses to shine,
Rocks and mountains, don't fall on me;
I know King Jesus will-a be mine,
Rocks and mountains, don't fall on me. [Refrain]

4 The trump shall sound, and the dead shall rise,
Rocks and mountains, don't fall on me;
And go to mansions in-a the skies,
Rocks and mountains, don't fall on me. [Refrain]

Folk Songs of the American Negro (No. 1), 1907
