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 on the wild tumultuous sea
The weary soul is tossed,
“Lord, save!” let thy petition be,
Ere thy frail bark is lost.

Refrain:
Peace, be still, peace, be still;
The winds and the waters obey Thy will;
Peace, be still, peace, be still;
O speak Thy peace to me.

2 What though the waves of deep despair
Encompass thee today?
“Lord, save!” still be thy earnest prayer;
His voice the winds obey. [Refrain]

3 How sweet and holy is the calm,
When to the troubled soul
His tender accents, “Peace, be still,”
Across the waters roll! [Refrain]
