Hymnary Friends,

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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Thou art my Rock, O blessed Redeemer;
Thou art my Refuge where I may hide;
Thou art my Rock to shelter and bless me;
Ever in Thee I safely abide.

Refrain:
Thou art my Rock, O blessed Redeemer;
Thou art my Friend and Thou art my Guide;
Thou art my Hope, and Thou art my Saviour,
Thou art my Trust; in Thee will I hide.

2 Thou art my Rock when sin is inviting;
Thou art my Rock when trial is near;
Thou art my Rock when sorrow is smiling,
Thou art my Rock; why then should I fear? [Refrain]

3 Thou art my Rock, temptations defying;
Thou art my Friend unchanging and sure;
Wholly on Thee my soul is relying,
Ever to keep me faithful and pure. [Refrain]

4 Thou art my Rock; when kingdom and nation,
Ruler and crown, have crumbled to dust,
Thou shalt remain my Rock of salvation,
Rock everlasting; Thee will I trust. [Refrain]
