As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to
support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this
drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!
Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North
American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us
do that. 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.
1 O wondrous orb, ‘tis heav’n’s bright morning star,
Gives light and hope to wand’ring souls afar,
Brings Jesus near and sets our hearts aglow
With life and peace, heav’n’s sweet foretaste below.
Thou wilt keep Him in perfect peace
Whose mind is stayed on Thee,
Thou wilt keep Him, safely keep Him,
Because He trusteth in Thee.
2 My peace, said Christ, the sinner’s only friend,
I give to you, which God the Father sends;
Fear not, I say, though waves of trouble roll
My home’s prepared for every anxious soul. [Refrain]
3 Take courage, then, though rocks and shoals abound,
Our Pilot true, no better can be found,
Will land us safe from sorrow storm and care,
Where pain nor death can ever enter there. [Refrain]
4 O holy Dove, sweet messenger of peace,
Brood o’er my life till earth my soul release,
Then waft me home to regions fair above,
To dwell with Him who bought me with His love. [Refrain]Source: Hymns We Love, for Sunday Schools and All Devotional Meetings #146
