Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

1 Follow the path of Jesus,
Walk where His footsteps lead;
Keep in His beaming presence,
Ev'ry counsel heed;
Watch, while the hours are flying,
Ready some good to do;
Quick, while His voice is calling,
Yield obedience true!

2 Cling to the hand of Jesus,
All through the day and night;
Dark though the way and dreary,
He will guide you right.
Live for the good of others,
Helpless, oppressed and wrong;
Lift them from depths of sorrow,
In His strength be strong!

3 Take up the cross of Jesus,
Sharing the shame He bore;
Self and the world denying,
Love the Saviour more;
Tell all the world of Jesus,
Think of their gloom and loss,
Tell of His great salvation,
Glory in His cross.
