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

Full Text

1 There’s a Saviour who’s almighty,
He will guide my steps aright.
In the way that he directeth
I have faith, tho’ lacking sight.

Refrain:
My hand in his, I’ll tread the billows,
My hand in his, I’ll brave the storm,
My hand in his, he’ll take me over
I need not fear, nor have alarm.

2 As I travel toward that city
Of whose joys I long to prove;
My support is grace supernal,
My unerring counsel, love. [Refrain]

3 As he spake to trembling Peter,
Christ repeateth “Come” to e,
And the billows shall not harm you;
Wherefore doubtest thou? Saith, he. [Refrain]

4 All my doubts are gone forever,
And my soul is satisfied,
For omnipotence enthrills me,
Wondrous presence doth abide. [Refrain]
