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 Both weak and blind, dear Lord, I am,
For now thy face I cannot see,
But I can hear thy gentle voice
Speak words of love to me.

O some day I shall see,
And some day clasp thy hand,
Yes, some day see thy face,
When in thy courts I stand.

2 But I can feel thy gentle touch,
And I can read thy blessed word,
And with thy mighty, throbbing love
My lonely heart is stirred. [Refrain]

3 Till then, dear Lord, but lead me on,
And guide me in the better way,
Lest groping in the darkness here
My feet should go astray. [Refrain]

4 And when at last my journey’s o’er,
Earth’s heavy burdens are laid down,
When tears are changed to pearls of joy,
My cross to jeweled crown. [Refrain]
