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.

Representative Text

1 When enemies invade,
To Jesus I will flee,
What time I am afraid,
I will trust in Thee,

I will trust in Thee,
I will trust in Thee,
What time I am afraid,
I will trust in Thee.

2 Tho’ waves roll o’er my head,
This Rick will shelter me,
What time I am afraid,
I will trust in Thee, [Refrain]

3 Thy hand will bring me aid,
Thy heart my refuge be,
What time I am afraid,
I will trust in Thee, [Refrain]

4 I will not be dismayed
When death at hand I see,
What time I am afraid,
I will trust in Thee, [Refrain]

Owens, Priscilla Jane, was born July 21, 1829, of Scotch and Welsh descent, and is now (1906) resident at Baltimore, where she is engaged in public-school work. For 50 years Miss Owen has interested herself in Sunday-school work, and most of her hymns were written for children's services. Her hymn in the Scotch Church Hymnary, 1898, "We have heard a joyful sound" (Missions), was written for a Sunday-school Mission Anniversary, and the words were adapted to the chorus "Vive le Roi" in the opera The Huguenots.
