Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 O Rock of Refuge, Saviour, Friend,
O’er me Thy shelt’ring arms extend,
And evermore my soul defend;
O hear, and shelter me;
With trembling hope to Thee I fly,
Do not my eager suit deny;
Receive me, save me, or I die;
I trust alone in Thee.

2 O Rock of Refuge, in Thy grace
Receive me to Thy blest embrace;
Grant me the longed for hiding place;
Elsewhere I cannot go;
In Thy dear bosom let me hide,
And evermore in Thee abide;
No ill shall then my soul betide,
Nor fear of coming woe.

3 O Rock of Refuge, Thou canst give
Abiding rest, and bid me live;
A weary, helpless fugitive,
Let me Thy shelter claim;
No foe Thy presence shall invade,
Or ever make my soul afraid;
Secure within Thy gracious shade,
I sing of Thy dear name.
