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.
1 On stormy seas I sail my bark,
Nor fear for once the billows dark;
For streaming from the skies afar
Shines out the bright, the morning star.
Shine on, shine on, shine on,
O beautiful, beautiful star;
Shine on, shine on, shone on,
O beautiful star.
2 When on the crested wave I’m borne,
Amid the tumult of the storm;
Or, when the sea is calm and still,
‘Tis by that light I read God’s will. [Chorus]
3 Beyond the main a joyous band
Is waiting on the shining strand,
To welcome to that peaceful shore
My little bark, its perils o’er. [Chorus]
