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 Safe we rest, whatever may betide us;
God is over all.
Lo! his angels ever walk beside us,
Lead us lest we fall.

Singing, ever singing, we are in our Father's care.
Singing, ever singing, who would not be happy there?
Trusting, ever trusting in the Father whom we love,
For he ever watches o'er us from his heav'nly throne above.

2 Young are we and life is still before us,
Fill'd with smiles and tears;
But our Father ever watches o'er us
Through the passing years. [Chorus]

3 Lowly nature sings the Father's praises,
As its gifts may be;
Buds and blossoms join the silent chorus;
They from care are free. [Chorus]

4 We will trust him, who is watching o'er us,
Safe are we and blest;
In his arms the Father will enfold us,
Give us joy and rest. [Chorus]
