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.

Representative Text

1 O doubting soul, see Jesus!
He’s standing on the shore;
His voice can still the tempest,
And hush the billows’ roar.
His hand will bear thee o’er the waves,
For Jesus loves and Jesus saves!

Refrain:
His hand will bear thee o’er the waves,
For Jesus loves and Jesus saves!

2 O weeping one, see Jesus!
He’s calling thee today;
He’ll give thee songs for sighing,
And wipe thy tears away.
When waves of sorrow o’er thee roll
He’ll whisper peace unto thy soul. [Refrain]

3 O sinful soul, see Jesus!
He waits to set thee free;
‘Tis He alone can pardon,
he died to ransom thee;
When passion’s raging billows roar
He’ll bring thee safely to the shore. [Refrain]
