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 He leadeth me, for I can feel the clasping
Of that piercèd hand so firm, so kind, so dear;
And in sweet, trusting confidence I follow,
And fear no danger while my guide is near.

Refrain:
He leadeth me, He leadeth me,
No danger then my soul shall fear,
But in sweet, trusting confidence I follow,
And fear no danger while my guide is near.

2 He leadeth me, but not thro’ flow’ry meadows,
Where sunshine lingers all the gladsome day;
My tirèd feet are often torn and bleeding,
With thorns that pierce them in this narrow way. [Refrain]

3 He leadeth me, but sometimes in my blindness,
I turn aside to grasp at earthly toys;
Ah, then His voice so tenderly doth win me,
That like a shadow, fly all other joys. [Refrain]

4 He leadeth me, and I will clasp more closely
That piercèd hand so kind, so firm, so dear;
And in sweet, trusting confidence I follow,
And fear no danger while my guide is near. [Refrain]
