Dear Hymnary friend,

We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. Please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going?

Last month, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1 million sessions from approximately 750,000 users. What a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns. And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546 , or you can click the Donate button below.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,
Harry Plantinga

368. The Lord My Pasture Shall Prepare

1 The Lord my pasture shall prepare
And feed me with a shepherd’s care;
His presence shall my wants supply
And guard me with a watchful eye;
My noonday walks He shall attend
And all my midnight hours defend.

2 When in the sultry glebe I faint
Or on the thirsty mountain pant,
To fertile vales and dewy meads
My weary, wand'ring steps He leads,
Where peaceful rivers, soft and slow,
Amid the verdant landscape flow.

3 Tho' in the paths of death I tread,
With gloomy horrors overspread,
My steadfast heart shall fear no ill,
For Thou, O Lord, art with me still;
Thy friendly crook shall give me aid
And guide me thro' the dreadful shade.

4 Tho' in a bare and rugged way,
Thr' devious lonely wilds, I stray,
Thy bounty shall my pains beguile;
The barren wilderness shall smile,
With sudden greens and herbage crowned,
And streams shall murmur all around.

Amen.
