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 I cannot see, I do not know the way,
But having Thee, no other guide I need;
The darkest night shall be as safe as day,
And stony paths to sweetest shelter lead.

Refrain:
Thou art my way, dear Lord, Thou art my way,
The darkest night, with Thee is bright as day;
I’ll trust in Thee, content if I can say
Thou art my way, Thou art my way.

2 What tho’ the sunshine on my path falls not,
If but Thy loving smile be not withdrawn;
The clouds that darken now my earthly lot,
Will only make more bright the heav’nly dawn. [Refrain]

3 Holding Thy hand, for me once wounded sore,
I’m not alone, tho’ earthly friends are gone;
And should I stumble ere the journey’s o’er,
Thou wilt not let me go, for Thou art strong! [Refrain]

4 O, Jesus, Master, Friend, when Thou art near,
Sweet peace I have, and joy beyond compare;
Where Thou dost lead, I’ll go without a fear,
And in Thy strength the heaviest cross will bear. [Refrain]
