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 must walk thro’ the valley and the shadow,
But I’ll journey in a loving Saviour’s care;
He hath said He will never, never leave me,
With His staff He will comfort me there.

Thro’ the valley, thro’ the valley,
Thro’ the valley and the shadow I must go;
But the dark waves of Jordan will not harm me,
There is peace in the valley, I know.

2 Tho’ I walk thro’ the valley and the shadow,
Yet the glory of the dawning I shall see;
I shall join in the anthems over Jordan,
Where the loved ones are waiting for me. [Refrain]

3 I shall walk thro’ the valley and the shadow,
I shall follow where my Lord has gone before;
Thro’ the mists of the valley He will lead me,
Till I rest on the Evergreen Shore.
