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.

Representative Text

1 My trust I place now and ever
In One my soul can deliver,
A Refuge strong, failing never,
For His word is sure.

I am Alpha and Omega,
The beginning and the ending,
Which is and which was,
And which is to come.
I am Alpha and Omega,
The Beginning and the ending,
The Almighty, the Almighty, saith the Lord.

2 My heart with joy now is telling
Of Him who finds there a dwelling,
Whose love is gently compelling
On His word to rest. [Refrain]

3 Jehovah, God! Still attend me,
From doubt and fear still defend me,
Faith to sustain ever send me,
That my soul fail not. [Refrain]
