Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

Faiant, Yet Pursuing

Representative Text

1. We are walking on the waters
Of a dark and troubled sea,
And our hearts, O Lord, are fainting
That we cannot come to thee.

2. Fainting at the storms that gather,
Tho' above thy voice be heard
Fainting in thy very presence,
Tho' we venture at thy word.

3. Yet we know, since thou hast bidden
Us to walk, thou wilt sustain,
Thro' a way as rough and pathless
As the storm-toss'd watery main.

4. And if dangers so encompass
That thy form we scarcely see,
We may still press surely onward,
For thou bidst us come to thee.
