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.

Representative Text

1 When, on earth’s dark and stormy shore,
Wild billows beat, and tempests roar,
’Tis sweet to lift our thoughts above,
To realms of peace, of light and love,
Away in Heav’n, away in Heav’n.

2 When trials come, and pleasures go,
When hearts are crushed, and hot tears flow,
How precious then the hour of prayer,
The rest of faith, that all may share,
And hope of Heav’n, and hope of Heav’n.

3 When heavy burdens press the soul,
And all the surges o’er us roll,
Amid our sorrow light appears;
Faith bids the mourner dry his tears,
And look to Heav’n, and look to Heav’n.

4 At last, when heart and flesh shall fail,
And we must pass the shadowy vale,
Oh, then, blest Savior, be our stay,
And bring us to eternal day,
The day of Heav’n, the day of Heav’n.
