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.
1 Though the night o’erhang our dwelling,
And the tempests round us rave;
And the wintry blasts are swelling,
Till we fear there’s none to save.
2 Still the gospel streamlets flowing
To the hearts of all mankind,
And the heavenly breezes blowing,
Cheer the waiting, trusting mind.
3 In the cause of God engaged,
Wrongs of Satan to redress,
When the battle hottest raged,
We have always won success.
4 With the Christian’s banner o’er us,
As to duty we attend;
In the wide world spread before us
Christ shall ever be our friend.
5 In the morning of His coming,
When the warfare all is past,
We’ll be counted in the morning
Of His jewels at the last.
