Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

10597. I Will Help Thee

1 "I will help thee!" hear the promise
Of the One who reigns above;
Though I’m weak and heavy laden,
He will fill my heart with love.

"Fear thou not, for I am with thee,
I will hold thee by the hand,"
All along the pilgrim journey,
Safely to the Promised Land.

2 Led by Him, and trusting ever,
In His grace from day to day,
I shall be secure from danger,
From Him I shall never stray. [Refrain]

3 Keep me ever near Thee, Jesus,
With my hand enclosed in Thine;
Then, when duty calls, or danger,
I’ll not murmur nor repine. [Refrain]
