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.
1. Sweetly and softly my Saviour is calling,
Gently in tones sweet and low;
Calming the storms in my inward life beating,
And hushing my soul and its woe.
Then sweetly breathe on thy life,
And quiet all doubting within;
Yes, sweetly breathe on me thy life,
That my soul may be free from all sin.
2. Stronger and stronger my Saviour is holding,
Keeping me close in his arms;
Shielding me safe when the billows are rolling,
And resting my soul from alarms. [Chorus]
3. Deeper and deeper my Saviour is coming
Into my heart every day;
Guarding my footsteps while on this life's journey,
With light from yon heaven's own ray. [Chorus]
4. Daily, yes, daily I'm knowing him better,
Learning, close down at his feet,
'Till peace o'er my soul rushes on like a river,
And hearts in true unison beat. [Chorus]Source: Carols of Hope: a compilation of select sacred songs for use in Sunday schools, praise and young people's services #121
