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 shadows darkly gather
‘Round my pathway here below,
And the floods of sore affliction
Threaten me to overflow;
Then, O Father, give me shelter
‘Neath the shadow of Thy wing,
Then, O Father, give me shelter
‘Neath the shadow of Thy wing.

2 Let me learn the blessed lesson,
That behind the blackest sky
The bright sun of love is shining,
And the clouds must soon roll by,
May I know the sure, safe shelter,
‘Neath the shadow of Thy wing,
May I know the sure, safe shelter,
‘Neath the shadow of Thy wing.

3 Resting sweetly in Thy keeping,
Folded safely in Thy love,
Where no evil can come near me,
And no trials can me move;
When I creep into safe shelter
‘Neath the shadow of Thy wing,
When I creep into safe shelter
‘Neath the shadow of Thy wing.
