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. Lord, on Thee my strength relies,
O, hear me when I call;
Up to Thee I lift mine eyes,
My Life, my Help, my All.

Refrain
Source of comfort, spring of grace,
Cleanse my heart from every sin,
Now reveal Thy smiling face,
And make me pure within.

2. Rock on which my soul would rest,
From storm and tempest wild,
Gently pillowed on Thy breast,
Protect Thy weary child. [Refrain]

3. Let Thy Spirit be my guide,
To endless joys above;
Grant I may never turn aside,
Or once forget Thy love. [Refrain]

4. Soon my bark will speed its flight,
To yonder portals fair,
Soon ’twill reach the haven bright,
And drop its anchor there. [Refrain]
