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 Hymnary.org, 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,
Harry Plantinga

1. Jesus, Savior, we implore Thee,
Hear Thy children now before Thee,
For Thy goodness we adore Thee,
Still our hearts in safety keep.
While Thy mercy we are pleading,
Thou in Heav’n art interceding;
Lead us where Thy flocks are feeding,
Gentle Shepherd, lead Thy sheep.

2. Meekly now Thy Word receiving,
In Thy precious name believing,
Earthly pleasures gladly leaving,
Help us, Lord, to follow Thee.
Hoping, trusting, ne’er repining,
All to Thee by faith resigning,
In Thy gracious arms reclining,
Thy disciples we would be.

3. In our weakness, Lord, befriend us,
From the tempter’s power defend us,
May the shining ones attend us
When we wake, and when we sleep.
Peaceful in Thy strength abiding,
Joyful in Thy love confiding;
Where the living streams are gliding,
Blessèd Savior, lead Thy sheep.
