We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 Why should I be affrighted
At pestilence and war,
The fiercer be the tempest,
The sooner it is o'er
(Repeat previous line twice)
(Repeat previous 2 lines)

2 With Jesus in the vessel,
The billows rise in vain,
They only will convey me
To yon Elysian plains,
(Repeat previous line twice)
(Repeat previous 2 lines)

3 This world is full of dangers,
And foes that press me hard;
But Jesus he has promised
That he will be my guard.
(Repeat previous line twice)
(Repeat previous 2 lines)

4 Here I shall not be tempted
Above what I can bear,
When fightings are exerted,
His kingdom for to share.
(Repeat previous line twice)
(Repeat previous 2 lines)

5 From him I have my orders,
And while I do obey,
I find his Holy Spirit
Illuminates my way.
(Repeat previous line twice)

6 The way is so delightful,
I wish to travel on,
Till I arrive at heaven,
To receive a starry crown.
(Repeat previous line twice)
(Repeat previous 2 lines)
