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 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.
