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

817. Along the Silent Path

1 Along the silent path
By viewless spirits trod,
Another little traveler
Hath gone to be with God.

Refrain:
Bid us, O Lord, to go,
Or bid us here to stay;
We’ll walk with Thee while here below,
Or up the silent way.

2 Gone up from human love
To higher love and care;
From pain below to peace above,
In mansions, oh, so fair! [Refrain]

3 Attune our hearts, O Lord,
Though they with sorrow swell,
To say this meek, submissive word—
“Thou doest all things well.” [Refrain]
