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

15. Good Shepherd, Our Leader, Provider, and Guide

Good Shepherd, our Leader, Provider, and Guide,
who faithfully all of our needs has supplied,
we trust in your goodness, so steadfast and true,
affirming your presence in all that we do.

In days that are troubled and nights that are long,
when we find it hard to discern right from wrong,
when spirits are lowest and broken hearts grieve,
you teach us, encourage us, help us believe.

Whenever our selfishness leads us astray,
you find us, forgive us, and show us the way,
preparing a table for us in this place,
anointing our spirits with life-giving grace.

As long as we live, till the end of our days,
we'll offer our songs of thanksgiving and praise,
rejoicing, Good Shepherd, that we're not alone,
for in you, and with you, we're always at home.
