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 the way I’ll walk with Jesus,
Tho’ his face I cannot see,
Just to know that he is near me,
This is joy enough for me.

Blessed Lord what joy to be
Walking all the way with thee,
Feeling the touch of that hand divine,
Knowing the Christ-love is ever mine;
Bright in the light of eternity,
Jesus my Saviour I’ll see, I’ll see.

2 He will tune my silent powers
To a melody divine;
Falling down in golden showers,
O’er my path his mercies shine. [Refrain]

3 All the way I’ll walk with Jesus,
Tho’ the billows round me roar;
Death is but the shining portal,
To the blissful glory shore. [Refrain]
