Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 Thine forever, gracious King!
Safe I rest beneath thy wing,
While I hear thy voice divine
Whisper softly, I am thine.

Thine, because thy word has said
That for me thy blood was shed;
Thine, because to thee I came,
Asking mercy in thy name.

2 Thine forever, gracious King!
Now my trusting heart can sing;
Thine forever, praise to thee!
Thou hast paid the debt for me. [Refrain]

3 When the waves like mountains rise,
When the clouds o’erspread the skies,
Still I hear thy voice divine
Whisper softly, I am thine. [Refrain]

4 Thine forever, owned and blest,
Sweetly there my faith I rest;
Thine forever, born of thee,
Heir of immortality. [Refrain]
