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 By Thy blessed Spirit,
Saviour, lead Thou me;
There is none to guide me
Thro’ this world, but Thee.

By Thy spirit lead me,
With Thy manna feed me;
All along my pilgrim way,
Saviour, lead Thou me.

2 O my Saviour, hide me
In Thy secret place;
There no ill can harm me,
Sheltered by Thy grace. [Refrain]

3 With Thy hand defend me,
Grant Thy strength divine;
I am weak and helpless,
Make me wholly Thine. [Refrain]
