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

Not Less to Bear

I ask not, Lord, for less to bear, Here in the narrow Way

Author: Annie Rebekah Smith
Tune: HERBERT (Mason)
Published in 8 hymnals

Representative Text

1. I ask not, Lord, for less to bear
Here in the narrow way,
But that I may thy blessing share
In all I do or say,
In all I do or say.

2. With thee to lead, I will not fear
In scenes with danger rife,
While still thy cheering voice I hear,
"I am the Way, the Life,
I am the Way, the Life."

3. Then help me to improve with care,
These precious moments giv'n;
For they a faithful record bear,
Of good or ill, to Heav'n,
Of good or ill, to Heav'n.
