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 Hymnary.org, 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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

236. 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 pow'rful hand;
Bread of heaven,
Feed me till I want no more;
Bread of heaven,
Feed me till I want no more.

2 Open now the crystal fountain
Whence the healing waters flow;
Let the fiery cloudy pillar
Lead me all my journey thro':
Strong Deliv'rer,
Be thou still my strength and shield;
Strong Deliv'rer,
Be thou still my strength and shield.

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