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, 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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

1 Follow the steps of Jesus,
Follow ev'ry day;
Turn not aside nor falter,
Keep the narrow way.
Jesus the meek and lowly
Walked thro' life below,
Marking a beaten pathway,
O in that pathway go.

O follow, follow gladly,
In the path your Lord has trod,
He is your light
By day and night,
He leadeth you to God;
O follow, follow gladly,
There are blessings on the way;
Turn not aside,
But watch your Guide,
Who leads you to endless day.

2 Oft on a lonely mountain;
Oft 'neath olive's shade,
Jesus your great Example,
King and Saviour prayed.
Now in His footsteps follow,
Lead a life of pray'r,
He is a home preparing,
You shall His glory share. [Refrain]

3 Helping the weak and weary,
Christ your Saviour went,
Seek now to be His stewards
On His work intent.
Seek out the heavy hearted,
Seek the lost one too;
Follow the steps of Jesus,
Do what He'd have you do. [Refrain]
