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 My sails are spread to meet the gale,
O glory, hallelujah!
My trusty pilot will not fail,
O glory, hallelujah!

Refrain:
I hear his voice in sweet command,
While at the helm I see him stand;
I soon shall reach my fatherland,
O glory, hallelujah!

2 He stills the waves on ocean’s breast,
O glory, hallelujah!
He lulls my troubled thoughts to rest,
O glory, hallelujah! [Refrain]

3 The towering hills are drawing near,
O glory, hallelujah!
The distant sounds of joy I hear,
O glory, hallelujah! [Refrain]

4 Farewell, farewell to ev’ry care,
O glory, hallelujah!
My home, my home, I’ll soon be there!
O glory, hallelujah! [Refrain]
