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

83. Like a Shepherd

1 He that guardeth Israel
Slumbers not, nor sleeps;
Over all who trust in Him
Faithful watch He keeps.

Like a Shepherd He will guide,
And for all our wants provide;
Ever cool and pleasant fountains,
Leading us beside.

2 In the changing scenes of life,
Jesus still is near;
Soothing with His gentle voice
Ev’ry anxious fear. [Refrain]

3 Oh, the riches of His grace,
And His wondrous love;
Songs at night He giveth us,
Songs from Heav’n above. [Refrain]
