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,

330. The Pilgrim's Confidence

1 Walking through life’s dark, shady valley,
Walking with Jesus day by day;
Crossing the vale through death’s cold alley,
He will be with me all the way.
Keep me, O Lord, from harm and danger,
Trusting Thy grace while here I stay;
I am a pilgrim and a stranger,
Help me to humbly watch and pray;
I am a pilgrim and a stranger,
Help me to humbly watch and pray.

2 If the sun shine my heart is cheerful,
If the clouds come I can rejoice;
Help me, O Lord, to ever be thankful;
I have, like Mary, made the wise choice.
Precious Redeemer, keep me faithful,
By Thy own strength and grace I stand;
Help me do right and live more grateful,
Soon I shall reach the shining strand;
Help me do right and live more grateful,
Soon I shall reach the shining strand.

3 Welcome the storms, my hope is abounding;
Let the waves come, my anchor is sure;
Fixed in the Rock on which I am standing,
How can I fall when all is secure?
Wonderful peace in Thee I’m possessing,
Vict’ry through Christ I ever shall sing;
Let the rain fall in showers of blessing,
Homage and praise to Thee I would bring;
Let the rain fall in showers of blessing,
Homage and praise to Thee I would bring.
