Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, 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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

586. 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 longfelt grief,
when temptation 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.
