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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

On God supreme our hope depends

Representative Text

1 On God supreme our Hope depends,
Whose omnipresent Sight
Even to the pathless Realms extends
Of uncreated Night.

2 Plung'd in the Abyss of deep Distress
To him we rais'd our Cry:
His Mercy bad our Sorrows cease
And fil'd our Tongue with Joy.

3 Tho' Earth her ancient Seat forsake,
By Pangs confulsive torn,
Tho' her self ballanc'd Fabrick shake
And ruin'd Nature mourn:

4 Tho' Hills be in the Ocean lost
With all their trembling Lord,
No Fear shall e'er disturb the Just,
Or shake his Trust in God.

5 Nations remote and Realms unknown
In vain resist his Sway;
For lo! Jehovah's Voice is shewn
And Earth shall melt away.

6 Let War's devouring Surges rise
And swell on every side;
The Lord of Hosts our Safeguard is,
And Jacob's God our Guide.
