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

Representative Text

1 When in my sorrow, he found me—
Found me and bade me be whole;
Turned all my night into heavenly light,
And from me my burden did roll.

Jesus is strong to deliver:
Mighty to save, mighty to save!
Jesus is strong to deliver:
Jesus is mighty to save!

2 When in the tempest, he’ll hide us;
When in the storm, he’ll be near;
All the way long he will carry us on—
So now we have nothing to fear. [Refrain]

3 Why are you doubting and fearing?
Why are you still under sin?
Have you not found that his grace doth abound:
He’s mighty to save, let him in! [Refrain]
