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.

Representative Text

1 Be Thou our guide, O Man of Galilee,
All the way, all the way;
Be this our joy to serve and follow Thee,
Tell Thy love for aye.

How lowly, yet how royal,
O Thou our Master, Lord and King,
We yield Thee hearts so loyal,
And unto Thee our praise we sing.
We follow, follow ever,
For we would Thy disciples be,
And day by day Thy voice obey,
O Man of Galilee.

2 Be Thou our friend, O Man of Galilee,
Ever near, ever near;
Thy call divine, “O come ye unto me,”
We rejoice to hear. [Refrain]

3 Our Shepherd Thou, O Man of Galilee,
Ever blest, ever blest;
Our Pilot Thou o’er dark and stormy sea,
To the harbor rest. [Refrain]
