Dear Hymnary friend,

We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. Please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep going?

Last month, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1 million sessions from approximately 750,000 users. What a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns. And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source.

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.

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

On behalf of the entire team,

The Christian's Guide

Author: Maggie Stratton Meter: D with refrain Appears in 4 hymnals Scripture: John 16:13 First Line: Holy Bible, how I love it! Refrain First Line: Holy Bible, how I love thee! Lyrics: 1 Holy Bible, how I love it! How it doth my bosom cheer, When through trials and temptations It has always been so near! It will surely guide my footsteps In the strait and narrow way, If in trust I read its contents, If I always watch and pray. Refrain: Holy Bible, how I love thee! Safest guide through this dark world; Holy Bible, how I love thee! See its banner now unfurled. 2 As I walk this narrow pathway That will lead to endless rest, In the arms of my Redeemer, With my head upon His breast, I cannot enough be thankful For the love He showed to me, When He bore my sins of crimson In His body on the tree. [Refrain] 3 From the state of condemnation, Pride, and all formality, And from selfish exaltation, Through Christ’s word and blood I’m free; Blessed Bible! what a comfort! Its dear pages shine so bright; ’Tis the way from earth to heaven— I am walking in its light. [Refrain] 4 When old earth shall cease to travel, And when time shall be no more, With our loved ones we will gather Over on the other shore, Where all sorrow will be over, Where all tears are wiped away, Where with angel voices blending We shall sing in endless day. [Refrain] Topics: Bible/Word Used With Tune: [Holy Bible, how I love it!] Text Sources: Timeless Truths (; Faith Publishing House, Evening Light Songs, 1949, edited 1987 (335); The Gospel Trumpet Company, Select Hymns, 1911 (449)

Holy Spirit, Faithful Guide

Author: Marcus M. Wells Appears in 611 hymnals Scripture: John 16:13 Lyrics: 1 Holy Spirit, faithful Guide, Ever near the Christian’s side; Gently lead us by the hand, Pilgrims in a desert land; Weary souls fore’er rejoice, While they hear that sweetest voice, Whisp'ring softly, “Wand'rer, come! Follow Me, I’ll guide thee home.” 2 Ever present, truest Friend, Ever near Thine aid to lend, Leave us not to doubt and fear, Groping on in darkness drear; When the storms are raging sore, Hearts grow faint, and hopes give o’er. Whisp'ring softly, “Wand'rer, come! Follow Me, I’ll guide thee home.” 3 When our days of toil shall cease, Waiting still for sweet release, Nothing left but heav'n and prayer, Wond'ring if our names were there; Wading deep the dismal flood, Pleading naught but Jesus’ blood, Whisp'ring softly, “Wand'rer, come! Follow Me, I’ll guide thee home.” Used With Tune: [Holy spirit, faithful Guide]
