We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Representative Text

1 I will follow thee, my Jesus,
Where thou leadest I will go;
Will not murmur; will not question;
Simply follow, here below.

I will follow with my Jesus,
I will follow anywhere;
I will follow, yes, I’ll follow
With my Jesus anywhere.

2 It may be that thou wilt take me
Thro’ a dark and stormy way;
Loss of friends and death may test me,
Jesus, only, will I say. [Chorus]

3 Yes, I’ll follow, gladly follow,
For I’ve reckoned up the cost,
And with Jesus, precious Jesus,
I will count all things, but lost. [Chorus]
