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.

Jesus, in my walk and living

Representative Text

1 Jesus, in my walk and living,
Let me ever follow Thine;
Bearer of the cross, O teach me
Patiently to take up mine.
If by fellow men despised,
Make me like to Thee, O Christ,
O’er their sins and errors grieving,
And all injuries forgiving.

2 Let Thy precepts be my guidance,
Shining on my gloomy way;
Holding to Thy blest example,
Who can err or go astray?
Thou who fully didst fulfill
For our sake Thy Father’s will,
Help me so to live that never
Aught from Thee my soul shall sever.

3 In my joys and in my sorrows,
Teach Thou me that perfect faith
Which, in trustful prayer persistent,
Wavers not in life or death.
My will unto Thine I yield;
With Thy Word and Spirit filled,
Let my life to Thee be given:
Service here, and praise in Heaven.

4 For my task, O Lord, equip me
From Thy store of rich supply,
That the world and all its evils
I may in Thy strength defy.
Willing, yet in body weak,
I Thy safe protection seek;
Perfect strength in weakness give me,
In Thy saving arms receive me.
