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 On the blessed Rock of Ages,
In calm or tide,
Always in that sacred shelter
Let me abide.
Trusting only in its keeping,
Naught else to see,
Ever on the Rock of Ages,
Lord, hold Thou me.

Refrain:
Lord, hold Thou me,
Lord, hold Thou me,
Ever on the Rock of Ages,
Lord, hold Thou me,

2 On the blessed Rock of Ages,
Nor drawn away
By the many lights alluring,
O keep, I pray!
And if swept by sorrow’s tempest
My strength shall flee,
Father, on the Rock of Ages,
O hold Thou me. [Refrain]

3 On the blessed Rock of Ages
When comes the call;
Not to journey, ’tis but passing,
One step is all.
Only that I may be ready
Thy face to see,
O upon the Rock of Ages,
Lord, hold Thou me. [Refrain]
