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 the burdens gather ‘round me,
When temptations o’er me roll,
It is then I find sweet shelter
In the refuge of my soul.

It is Jesus, precious Jesus,
Who can still the tempest wild;
He can give the soul assurance,
I can know I am His child.

2 When the sunlight’s almost faded,
Naught on earth can rift the clouds;
Jesus comes and gently whispers,
Then my soul to Him is bowed. [Refrain]

3 Oh, the cherished dream of pilgrims,
As they journey here below,
Would be shattered by the tempest
If our Savior did not know. [Refrain]

4 Yes, the joy of serving Jesus
Is a privilege divine;
In the secret of His presence,
There my soul may ever shine. [Refrain]
