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.

Representative Text

1 Peter on the troubled sea,
Heedless of the tempest shock,
Walks the waters steadily,
As upon the granite rock.

Though the howling tempest raves,
Jesus, mighty Jesus, saves;
While I walk the troubled waves,
Jesus, mighty Jesus saves.

2 Walking through the storm and strife,
Wailing winds and billows roar,
Blessed promises of life
Bear me up forevermore. [Refrain]

3 Walking thus and all is well,
With my eyes on help divine,—
Yea, in death my lips shall swell
Songs triumphant and sublime. [Refrain]
