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.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 All along on the road to the souls true abode,
There’s an eye watching you;
Ev’ry step that you take this great eye is awake,
There’s an eye watching you.

Watching you, watching you,
Ev’ry day mind the course you pursue,
Watching you, watching you,
There’s an all seeing Eye watching you.

2 As you make life’s great fight, keep the pathway of right,
There’s an eye watching you;
God will warn not to go in the path of the foe,
There’s an eye watching you. [Refrain]

3 Fix your mind on the goal, that sweet home of the soul,
There’s an eye watching you;
Never turn from the way to the kingdom of day,
There’s an eye watching you. [Refrain]
