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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 Where’er I go the Saviour will go with me,
It matters not how dark and rough my way,
With tender love He circles all my journey,
I cannot get beyond His loving sway.

I cannot get beyond the circle of His love,
I cannot get beyond the circle of His love;
His presence goes before me,
And His love-light shineth o’er me,
So I cannot get beyond His love.

2 In sorrow’s hour His tender love abideth,
For ev’ry woe He hath a soothing balm;
‘Mid ev’ry stormy tempest, wildly beating,
He whispers peace, and there is instant calm. [Refrain]

3 Oh, peerless love, beyond all understanding!
And ev’ry soul this lasting love may choose!
Far-reaching love, so measureless, so boundless,
How strange that hearts can e’er such love refuse. [Refrain]

4 No pow’rs, no depths, no tow’ring heights above me,
Nor life, nor death, nor trials anywhere,
Can separate me from the love of Jesus,
Or keep me from His watchful, tender care. [Refrain]
