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,

Full Text

1 As I cling to the hand of my Lord each day,
What a gladness is mine in the heav’nward way!
Blessed fellowship ours all the way belong,
As my gladness voices itself in song.

Refrain:
Clinging, clinging by faith to my Savior’s hand;
Clinging, clinging to Him who my way hath planned;
Clinging, clinging to Jesus, my Hope, my All;
Clinging, clinging, clinging, I cannot fall.

2 If I cling to His hand when the way grows dim,
What is there I need fear, since I trust in Him?
For His love lights the way that my feet must tread,
And Faith’s daystar brightens the path ahead. [Refrain]

3 I will cling to the hand whose nail-prints I see,
And will rest in the love that is full and free;
Clinging ever to Him, of His grace I sing,
Christ, my Savior, ever to be my King. [Refrain]

Lizzie De Armond was a prolific writer of children's hymns, recitations and exercises. When she was twelve years old her first poem was published in the Germantown, Pa. Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
