Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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. Hide not Thy face, O Lord of Grace;
Thou who hast tasted woe;
Thro’ error’s night lend Thou Thy light
To guide me as I go!
Guide me, guide me, in this world of woe;
Thro’ error’s night lend Thou Thy light
To guide me as I go!

2. On Calv’ry’s tree a thief to Thee
Turned his repentant eyes,
And for the gloom of death’s dark doom
Thou gavest Paradise!
Guide me, guide me, guard me with Thine eyes,
And for the gloom of death’s dark doom
Thou gavest Paradise!

3. E’en so thro’ tears of burdened years
Earth’s children cry to Thee,
Whose blood was spilt that human guilt
Be pardoned, full and free!
Guide me, guide me, hear my cry to Thee,
Whose blood was spilt that human guilt
Be pardoned, full and free!

4. Contrite they plead their every need,
Thy grace will e’en fulfill,
To life’s last breath, thro’ gloom of death,
Guide Thou the wayward still!
Guide me, guide me, that I do Thy will,
To life’s last breath, thro’ gloom of death,
Guide Thou the wayward still!
