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

What though the tempests

Full Text

1 What tho’ the tempests rage around thee,
Child of the living God?
Fear not to tread with faith and courage
Where thy Redeemer trod;
Fail not to bear the gospel banner,
Fear not the world’s cold scorn;
Tho' now the night be dark with sorrow,
Joy cometh with the morn.

2 Strong is the Hand that leads thee forward,
Changeless the Father’s love;
Dread not the surging waves below thee,
Fear not the clouds above;
Hold fast the promise of salvation,
And to the end endure;
Ever be faithful to thy calling,
And thy reward is sure.
