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.

587. Jesus, Still Lead On

1 Jesus, still lead on
Till our rest be won;
And although the way be cheerless,
We will follow, calm and fearless;
Guide us by Your hand
To our promised land.

2 If the way be drear,
If the foe be near,
Let no faithless fears o'ertake us,
Let not faith and hope forsake us;
Safely past the foe
To our home we go.

3 When we seek relief
From a long-felt grief,
When temptations come alluring,
Make us patient and enduring;
Show us that bright shore
Where we weep no more.

4 Jesus, still lead on
Till our rest be won;
Heav'nly Leader, still direct us,
Still support, console, protect us.
Till we safely stand
In our promised land.
