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 will bless the Lord and praise Him evermore,
In His name my trust shall be;
I will sing His praise and triumph in His grace,
For His righteousness avails for me.

With Him own right hand He leadeth me,
And the way grows bright as I go;
For with Him I walk by rivers of delight,
Where the living waters gently flow.

2 I will bless the Lord, whose tender, loving care
Has been with me all my days;
He has filled my life with blessings ever new,
And merciful are all His way. [Refrain]

3 I will bless the Lord, my Shelter and Defence,
I will trust, and fear no ill;
Tho’ I walk alone the valley and the shade,
His rod and staff shall comfort still. [Refrain]
