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,

503. Through good report and evil, Lord

1 Through good report and evil, Lord,
Still guided by Thy faithful Word,
Our staff, our buckler, and our sword,
We follow thee.

2 With enemies on ev'ry side,
We learn on thee, the Crucified;
Forsaking all on earth beside,
We follow thee.

3 O Master, point thou out the way,
Nor suffer thou our steps to stray;
Then in the path that leads to day,
We follow thee.

4 Thou hast passed on before our face;
Thy footsteps on the way we trace;
Oh, keep us, aid us by thy grace:
We follow thee.

5 Whom have we in the heaven above,
Whom on this earth, save thee, to love?
Still in thy light we onward move;
We follow thee.
