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 Holy Jesus, be my light,
Shine upon my way,
Through this tempting, changing life
Lead me day by day.

2 As the wise men came of old,
Traveling afar,
Guided to Thy cradle throne
By a wondrous star;

3 So be Thou my constant Guide,
Lead me all the way,
Till I reach Thy home at last,
Nevermore to stray.
