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 Oh, hide me, dear Savior, when wild tempests blow,
The rock of my refuge when floods overflow;
I see thy protection, oh, let me abide,
Till life’s storms are past, sheltered safe at thy side.

Hide me near thee,
Thou art the refuge of my soul;
Hide me near thee,
When the tempests round me roll.

2 Oh, hide me, dear Savior, when Satan is come
To tempt my poor soul from my Savior to roam;
Oh, let thy sweet spirit remain in my heart,
My tower, my fortress, dear Savior, thou art. [Refrain]

3 Oh, hide me, dear Savior, thy precious ones hide,
Tho’ dangers surrounding, sustain me and guide,
And take me to rest with thy people at last,
When life’s sun is set, and the storms are all past. [Refrain]
