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.

Representative Text

1 Tho’ I’m walking on life’s pathway
And my way with trials beset;
Tho’ temptation come upon me,
There’s a place I ne’er forget.
When my heart is heavy-laden,
Then I fly to Jesus’ breast;
He’s the rock, for weary trav’ler,
In whose shadow, rest.

In the shadow of the rock I am resting,
I am resting ‘neath its shade each day,
In the shadow of the rock I am resting,
In the shadow of the rock I’ll stay.

2 There is shade along life’s pathway,
There is shelter from the glare;
There is one who knows my troubles,
Who will all my burdens share.
There is rest when I am weary,
There’s a rock to shelter me,
‘Neath the shadow I’m abiding,
There is room for thee. [Refrain]

3 Are you walking on life’s pathway,
‘Neath a cruel burning sun?
Looking for a place of resting,
Ere the journey’s halfway run?
Ask the Saviour to accept you,
He’s the rock where you may rest;
Come abide within the shadow,
Come to Christ, be blest. [Refrain]
