Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you 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.org team, our thanks.

1Gently, Lord, O gently lead us
2God moves in a mysterious way
4Jesus, Lover [Savior] of my soul, Let me to thy bosom [refuge] fly
6Watchman, tell us of the night
8While shepherds watch [watched] their flocks by night
10It came upon the [a] midnight clear
12Shout the glad tidings, exultingly sing
14Hark, the glad sound, the Savior comes
16Brightest and best of the sons [stars] of the morning
18Go to dark [sad] Gethsemane
20All hail the power of Jesus' name, Let angels prostrate fall
22Hail to the Lord's anointed
25Before Jehovah's awful throne
26God is love, his mercy brightens
28Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, Early
30When all thy [your] mercies, O my [our] God [gracious Lord]
33From all that [who] dwell [dwells] below the [in earth and] skies
34Praise to God, immortal praise
36O Jesu [Jesus], thou art standing
38My faith looks up to thee, Thou Lamb of Calvary
40Jesus, I my cross have taken, all to leave
43Softly now the light of day
44Rock of Ages, cleft for me, Let me hide myself in Thee
46Abide with me, fast falls the eventide
48The morning light is breaking; the darkness disappears
50Nearer, my God, to thee, nearer to thee
52I think, when I read that [the] sweet story of old
54Just as I am, without one plea
56Whilst thee I seek, protecting power
58Guide me, O thou great Jehovah
60By cool Siloam's shady rill
62From Greenland's icy mountains
64I would not live alway, live always below
67Lead, kindly Light, amid the encircling gloom
68There is a happy land, Far, [not] far away
70There is a land of pure delight, Where saints immortal reign
72Hark! hark, my soul! angelic songs are swelling
75Lord, dismiss us with thy blessing
76O Paradise, O Paradise, who doth [does] [would] not win thy rest
79Children of the heavenly king as we journey
80O star of truth, down shining
82Still, still with thee, when purple morning breaketh
84I was a wandering sheep
86In heavenly love abiding
88In the cross of Christ I [we] glory, towering
90O holy Savior Friend unseen, since on thine arm
92When I survey the wondrous cross
93Savior, breathe an evening blessing
94Welcome, happy morning, age to age shall say
96When morning gilds the skies
98Hark, my soul, it is the Lord
100Blest be the tie that binds our hearts in Christian love
102Fierce was the wild billow [billow wild]
104Hark, the herald angels sing, glory to the newborn King
106I heard the voice of Jesus say, come unto me and rest
108Jerusalem, the golden, with milk and honey blest
110A charge to keep I have, A God to glorify
111Oh, could I speak the matchless worth
112Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war, With the cross
114Our blest Redeemer, ere he breathed
116Sun of my soul [our souls], thou [my] [O] Savior [Father] dear
118The shadows of the evening hours
120Hark, what mean those holy voices
122A few more years shall roll
124As pants the hart for cooling flood [springs] [streams]
126O mother dear, Jerusalem
128Dawn sprinkles [purples] all the East with light
129Sweet day, so cool, so calm, so bright
130Christ to the young man said: Yet one thing more
132Lord of all being, throned afar
134O love divine, that [who] stooped [stoop'st] [stoops] to share
135Sunlight upon Judea's hills
138The Son of God goes forth to war
140From every stormy wind [sense] that blows
141O worship the King, all glorious above
144Up to those bright and gladsome hills
146A mighty fortress is our God
148When Isr'l, of the Lord beloved
150The King of love my shepherd is
152Thou sayest, Take up thy cross
154Beyond, beyond the [that] boundless sea
156Father, I know that all my life Is portioned out for me
158City of God, how broad and far [fair]
160Day of wrath, that day of days
164Behold the sun, that seemed but now
166Sunset and evening star and one clear call for me
167Upon the hills the wind is sharp and cold
169O God, our help in ages past
171Never weather-beaten sail more willing bent to shore
172Do I not love Thee, Lord most high
174Maker of the human heart
176Out of the depths I cry to Thee
