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. The Savior’s arms are opened wide,
He shields from the storms of life;
We fear no ill when by His side,
He shields from the storms of life.

Refrain
He shields from the storms of life,
He shields from the storms of life;
We’ll praise Him with an endless song,
He shields from the storms of life.

2. No matter where His hand may lead,
He shields from the storms of life;
His loving care supplies our need,
He shields from the storms of life. [Refrain]

3. Though oft our steps have gone astray,
He shields from the storms of life;
He brought us to the narrow way,
He shields from the storms of life. [Refrain]

4. He is our loving Guide and Friend,
He shields from the storms of life;
He’ll safely keep us to the end,
He shields from the storms of life.
Refrain
