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 life is full of toil and care,
When on our way the shadows fall,
That we may trust, and journey on,
God speaketh to us all:

Be still, be still,
Be still and know that I am God;
Be still, be still,
Be still and know that I am God.

2 When heavy is the given cross,
When strength is ready to depart,
That we may trust, and murmur not,
God whispers to the heart: [Refrain]

3 When rugged is the sea of life,
When storms abide and billows roll,
That we may trust, and never fear,
God whispers to the soul: [Refrain]

4 In all the days that are to come,
In all the griefs that may befall,
That we may trust his guiding hand,
God speaketh to us all: [Refrain]
