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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 Guide my footsteps, Father,
Lead me lest I stray;
Let Thy hand unerring
Point out all my way.
When the road is dreary,
And my soul is sad,
When my heart is weary,
Do Thou make me glad.

Refrain:
Be my Rock and Fortress,
Be my Strength and Stay;
Like a tender Shepherd lead me,--
Lead me safely all the way.

2 As I journey onward
To the home above,
All my pathway shelter
With Thy wings of love.
'Neath them my pavilion,
Naught can me alarm,
Shining sun, or shadow,
Neither worketh harm. [Refrain]

3 Guide my footsteps, Father,
Night draws on apace;
Working hours of brightness
To the dark give place.
Guide my footsteps, Father,
What have I to fear?
Thou my joyful portion,
Thou my Guide sincere! [Refrain]
