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 help thee!" hear the promise
Of the One who reigns above;
Though I’m weak and heavy laden,
He will fill my heart with love.

"Fear thou not, for I am with thee,
I will hold thee by the hand,"
All along the pilgrim journey,
Safely to the Promised Land.

2 Led by Him, and trusting ever,
In His grace from day to day,
I shall be secure from danger,
From Him I shall never stray. [Refrain]

3 Keep me ever near Thee, Jesus,
With my hand enclosed in Thine;
Then, when duty calls, or danger,
I’ll not murmur nor repine. [Refrain]
