During our last fund drive a donor said this: "Covid-19 rules prevent us from singing during my husband's burial service, so we will play the tune while we read the printed words or hum along with the music." Needless to say, this testimony struck us and stuck with us. We never know on any given day how Hymnary.org will be a blessing to people, but we know that around the world, the site is making a powerful difference in the lives of many.

Thanks to all who use Hymnary.org and all who support it with gifts of time, talent and treasure. If you feel moved to support our work today with a gift of any amount and a word of encouragement, we would be grateful.

To donate online, please use the Calvin University secure giving site. If you'd like to make a gift by check, please send it to: Hymnary.org, Calvin University, 3201 Burton Street SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

What though my joys and comfort die?
The Lord my savior liveth.
What though the darkness gather round?
Songs in the night he giveth.

(My Life Flows On In Endless Song)

His Hand Is Guiding Me

As I travel on my way, To that land more fair than day

Tune: [As I travel on my way]
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 As I travel on my way,
To that land more fair than day,
There are beauties all along the road to see;
Heaven’s rays are shining bright,
I’ve no need for worldly light,
For I know my Savior’s hand is guiding me.

Refrain:
Oh, I know my Savior’s hand is guiding me,
Oh, I know my Savior’s hand is guiding me,
From this world of sin and woe,
To a land where pleasures flow;
Yes, I know my Savior’s hand is guiding me.

2 If as on the way I go,
Things arise I do not know,
I will wait upon the Lord that leadeth me—
He will hold me by the hand
Till I reach that happy land,
Yes, I know my Savior’s hand is guiding me. [Refrain]

3 When in sickness, trial, or test,
I am called to do my best,
I will trust the Lord the more for victory;
I will lean upon His arm,
He will keep me from all harm,
For I know my Savior’s hand is guiding me. [Refrain]

4 When I near the chilling tide,
Looking on the other side,
And my mortal bark shall sink in death’s cold sea,
Jesus then will light the way
To that land more fair than day,
For I know my Savior’s hand is guiding me. [Refrain]
