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 Jesus came and sought me,
Into life He brought me,
Taught my grateful heart to sing
The glad new song;
Praise and glory giving
Christ, the ever living,
Praise to Him whose mercy leads me
All along.

All along,
All along;
Though I wander through the desert,
Praise the Lord;
Still the cloud is o’er me,
Going on before me;
Step by step the light I follow;
Praise the Lord.

2 By His love attended,
By His grace defended,
Every day He crowneth me
With joy and song;
Should the way be dreary,
I can never weary,
Trusting Him who gently leads me
All along. [Refrain]

3 When the shadows gather
O’er the lonely river,
When I hear the echo
Of the angels’ song,—
Sweet will be the morning,
Eden’s land adorning;
Sweeter far the love that led me
All along. [Refrain]
