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 In days of youth so bright and fair,
Ere time hath left its trace of care,
Or sin its deadly work hath wrought,
Then lead me to the Rock.

Refrain:
Lead me, lead me,
This shall be my cry,
Lead me, lead me,
To the Rock that is higher than I.

2 When earthly pleasures charm me not,
And grief and sorrow are my lot,
May faith and hope the gloom dispel
And lead me to the Rock. [Refrain]

3 And when at last life’s work is o’er,
And I draw near the golden shore,
The, as through life, my pray’r shall be,
O lead me to the Rock. [Refrain]
