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.

Who O'er The Waves From Shore To Shore

Representative Text

1 Who o’er the waves from shore to shore
The gifts of commerce bear,
The wonders of the deep explore,
And own that God is there.

2 By these His works are seen; His ways
By these are understood;
He speaks the word; the storm obeys,
And rising lifts the flood.

3 Distressed, to God they make their prayer;
Obedient to His will,
The storms that raged their rage forbear,
The seas that roared are still.

4 Each grief, each fear, at once resigned,
They see their labor o’er.
Then, led by Him, their haven find,
And touch the wished for shore.

5 O then, that all would bless His name,
Whose mercy thus they prove,
And pleased from age to age proclaim,
The wonders of His love!
