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.

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

When by storm my bark is driven

Representative Text

1 When by storm my bark is driven
Wildly o'er the troubled tide;
Christ, whose heart by me was riven,
will my soul in safety hide.

He will hide me, safely hide me,
Till my trials all are o'er;
He will hide me, safely hide me,
In His love forevermore.

2 When by sin's dark clouds surrounded,
And I seem to all but fail;
He, whose hands and feet I wounded,
He will hide me from the gale. {Chorus]

3 when my soul longs for the morrow,
When I try, but cannot sing;
He, whose head I bowed in sorrow,
He will hide me 'neath His wing. [Chorus]
