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 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]
