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 Thro' dark and light, thro' storm and sun,
Like ships that sail the sea,
In faith and hope, and purpose, one,
We drift, O, God, to thee.

2 The tender presence of thy love
Is over all our days
And every pray'r we lift above
Is sweet with thankful praise.

3 Today, within this sacred place,
Oh, let thy Spirit be,
That so the joy on every face
May seem a ray from Thee.

4 And Jesus, only let us sing
In one exulting chord,
Beneath the shadow of His wing,
As we have seen the Lord.
