Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

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]
