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.

1 I am the way, the truth, the life;
Just follow Me and leave your strife.
I am this dark world’s only light;
Can you not trust in Me?

When you’re afraid, just trust in Me.
When your hopes fade, just trust in Me.
When prayers you’ve made have been delayed,
Don’t be dismayed—just trust in Me.

2 I’m the good shepherd of the sheep,
The door to guard you from the thief.
Your highest good I always seek,
Can you not trust in Me? [Refrain]

3 The bread of life—come eat and see,
My strength each day is yours for free.
I am the vine; remain in Me;
Can you not trust in Me? [Refrain]

4 I am the resurrection, too;
I bring eternal life to you.
Your cares on earth are but a few;
Can you not trust in Me? [Refrain]
