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

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]
