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,

161. Stepping In the Light

1 Trying to walk in the steps of the Savior,
Trying to follow our Savior and King;
Shaping our lives by His blessed example,
Happy, how happy, the songs that we bring.

How beautiful to walk in the steps of the Savior,
Stepping in the light,
Stepping in the light;
How beautiful to walk in the steps of the Savior,
Led in paths of light.

2 Pressing more closely to Him who is leading,
When we are tempted to turn from the way;
Trusting the arm that is strong to defend us,
Happy, how happy, our praises each day. [Chorus]

3 Walking in footsteps of gentle forbearance,
Footsteps of faithfulness, mercy and love;
Looking to Him for the grace freely promised,
Happy, how happy, our journey above! [Chorus]

4 Trying to walk in the steps of the Savior,
Upward, still upward, we'll follow our Guide;
When we shall see Him, “the King in His beauty,”
Happy, how happy, our place at His side! [Chorus]
