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 Rest in the shadow of the Rock, O pilgrim,
Rest, pilgrim, rest;
Night treads close upon the heels of day,
There is no other resting place this way,
The rock is near,
The well is clear,
Rest in the shadow of the Rock, O pilgrim,
Rest, pilgrim, rest!

2 Rest in the shadow of the Rock, O pilgrim,
Rest, pilgrim, rest;
Worn by journey are thy weary feet,
Turn now, O Pilgrim, to this calm retreat,
Oh, sweetly rest,
By care oppressed,
Rest in the shadow of the Rock, O pilgrim,
Rest, pilgrim, rest!

3 Rest in the shadow of the Rock, O pilgrim,
Rest, pilgrim, rest;
They who slumber by the Rock so dear,
Awake rejoicing, for their home is near;
Beneath its shade,
Thy bed is made:
Rest in the shadow of the Rock, O pilgrim,
Rest, pilgrim, rest!
