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 While across time’s ocean sailing,
Should thy sky adversely lower,
And temptation’s waves assailing,
Rock thee with alarming power,

Look to Jesus! Look to Jesus!
Whatsoe’er thy trouble be,
Trust in Jesus! Trust in Jesus!
He will prove a friend to thee.

2 When thy faith begins to waver,
And thy strength and hope grow small,
Raise thine arms to Heav’n, where Jesus
Waits to heed thy faintest call. [Refrain]

3 When thy heart is sad with trouble,
And thy mind dark with despair,
Look to Jesus, who regards thee,
With the tenderest love and care. [Refrain]

4 Long as life’s voyage is tending,
Onward ever to its end,
Look to Jesus, He will prove thee
An unfailing, precious friend. [Refrain]
