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.

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. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

E98. Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah

1 Guide me, O Thou great Jehovah,
Pilgrim thro' this barren land:
I am weak but Thou art mighty,
Hold me with Thy powerful hand:
Bread of heaven, Bread of heaven,
Feed me till I want no more!

2 Open now the crystal fountain,
Whence the healing streams do flow:
Let the fiery, cloudy pillar,
Lead me all my journey thro':
Strong Deliv'rer, strong Deliv'rer,
Be Thou still my strength and shield!

3 When I tread the verge of Jordan,
Bid my anxious fears subside:
Bear me thro' the swelling current,
Land me safe on Canaan's side:
Songs of praises, songs of praises
I will ever give to Thee.
