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

I cannot see before me

Representative Text

1 I cannot see before me
What may my steps betide,
But God's own eye is o'er me,
And he can seas divide.

2 Tho' danger may beset me,
The God of power's my friend,
And he will never let me
Need care, and not defend.

3 Tho' Satan's hosts defy me,
My God is more than they,
And help he'll not deny me,
While I his will obey.
