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 Children are the lambs of Jesus,
God’s won Word doth tell us so;
Lovingly we hear Him calling,
“Follow in My steps below.”

We will follow, gladly follow,
While we hear Him whisper, “Come;”
Thro’ this world of sin and darkness,
He will lead us safely home.

2 In the narrow way with Jesus,
We are kept from ev’ry snare;
Danger may be all around us,
We are safe in His dear care. [Refrain]

3 He will ever go before us,
Keeping us from day to day,
For He is our tender Shepherd,
And will lead us all the way. [Refrain]
