Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 Surely, surely, there is safety
In the shelter of our Lord,
He is ready to protect us,
When His mercy is implored;
Let us look to Him in trouble
When upon life’s stormy sea,
He will be a place of refuge,
Where our souls at rest may be.

2 He will lead us on to heaven
If we follow in His way;
And will be the Star to guide us
To the bright, celestial day;
Let us steer life’s vessel ever
To the harbor of His grace,
So that He at last may bring us
To behold Him face to face.

3 He’s a Refuge never failing
And a Rock on which to stand;
And to us He’s ever reaching
With a tender, loving hand;
He will keep us safe for ever
Sheltered by His boundless love,
Till we enter thro’ the portals
To the home prepared above.
