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 may not see the path I tread,
Nor would I, if I might;
I’d rather live a life of faith,
Than trust my own dim sight.

My Father’s hand will lead aright;
I’ll follow Him by faith, not sight;
I’ll follow Him, I’ll follow Him by faith, and not by sight.

2 I know not what the future holds;
It may be grief and care:
It may be peace and happiness
And joy of answered pray’r. [Refrain]

3 I know not what the morrow hides
Behind its misty veil,
But God has promised strength; and when
Did e’er His promise fail. [Refrain]

4 So I will trust Him, tho’ my path
With pain and care is rife;
For at its end He’ll give to me
The prize of endless life. [Refrain]
