Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 He leads me on thro’ deserts drear,
And over mountains wild;
Where’er He leads me I’ll not fear,
For I am still His child.

He leads me on, He leads me on,
With Him my way is sure;
His heav’nly love enfoldeth me,
And keeps my heart secure.

2 He leads me where the torrents roar,
And thro’ the stormy sea,
I hear Him calling from the shore,
“Fear not, but follow me.” [Refrain]

3 He leads me ‘neath the starry sky,
And thro’ the noontide heat,
I know He guides me with His eye,
And stays my falt’ring feet. [Refrain]

4 He leads me on my pilgrim way,
By watchful care I’m bound,
There is no place along my way
But that my God is found. [Refrain]
