We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Representative Text

1 Father, lead me, for I need Thee
Ev’ry step of life’s long way;
Thou alone art e’er unchanging,
Give Thy presence day by day.

Father, lead me now and ever,
For I know Thy way is best,
Fold me closer, fold me closer,
Let me find in Thee sweet rest.

2 From all sin and fear of falling
Fully free my soul would be;
And with humble, child-like trusting,
I would follow only Thee. [Refrain]

3 Father, lead me until evening,
When shall set life’s fleeting sun,
And I bring my sheaves all golden,
Then to hear Thee say, “Well done.” [Refrain]
