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 hallowed hour when grace divine,
With rapture fills this heart of mine,
And sweetly tunes my tongue to sing,
The praise of him, my Lord and King.

From every ill he guards me still,
And draws my soul to heav’n above;
And still I know where’er I go,
His banner over me is love.

2 O hallowed peace, O pure delight,
My sky is clear, its star is bright,
My hope is firm, my joy complete,
While resting here at Jesus’ feet. [Refrain]

3 When trials deep like surges roll,
He safely hides my trembling soul;
Above the clouds my faith can see
His banner waving over me. [Refrain]

4 And when at last my journey o’er,
My feet shall press the golden shore;
What bliss to sing thro’ endless days,
My Savior’s love, my Savior’s praise. [Refrain]
