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 our loving Redeemer,
Watch o’er our footsteps we pray,
Lest in the hour of temptation,
From Thy safe keeping we stray.

Watch o’er our footsteps,
Watch o’er our footsteps, we pray;
Lest in the hour of temptation,
From Thy safe keeping we stray.

2 Dangers around us are thronging,
Countless the voices that call;
But Thy dear voice, O, our shepherd,
May we hear loud over all. [Refrain]

3 Thou who hast ransomed and saved us,
Knowest the way we must take;
Help us to faithfully follow,
Bearing the cross for Thy sake. [Refrain]

4 Watch o’er us, guard us, and keep us,
Till in Thy presence above,
Safely at last we are gathered,
Telling Thy wonderful love. [Refrain]
