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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 Trust in Jesus, trembling soul,
Nor fear the shadows dim,
Though around thee, storms may roll,
Sweet peace abides with him.
He will keep the when the darkness falls upon thy way,
Guiding thee by his own light,
Till thou shalt find the day.

Rest, trembling soul, upon the Saviour’s breast;
Naught shall disturb thy peaceful rest;
For the angels about thee faithful watch will keep;
Rest, trembling soul;
Rest, sweetly rest.

2 From the world, and from its strife,
In Jesus safely hide;
Find the calm and blessed life,
Close to his wounded side;
Ever learning more and more,
The secrets of his love,
Till on Eden’s fadeless shore,
We join the song above. [Refrain]
