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.

When the distressed disciples were

When the distressed disciples were

Representative Text

1 When the distress'd Disciples were
On raging billows toss'd,
Their mind were fill'd with dread and fear
They gave themselves for lost.

2 But O, how soon the seas obey'd!
When Jesus spake on board;
How soon her blasts and storms were laid
At his commanding word.

3 When troubles like the swelling waves
Oppress our feeble mind,
Yet when we cry, O Saviour save!
Deliv'rence we shall find.

4 Should we be drove by wind and tide!
And beaten from the cape;
The Lord will ever more provide
A way for our escape.

5 Our faith however, weak it is!
We shall not quite dispair;
The Lord who gave his promises
Will always hear our prayer.

6 Dear Lord, since thy dear Church below
Is like a ship on Sea,
Which oft is driven to and fro
In much perplexity.

7 Calm thou, her mind in all alarm
And aid her weak effort,
Conduct her safe thro' every storm
To reach the happy Port.
