Dear Friend of Hymnary,

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

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]
