We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Representative Text

1 Jesus, Thy strength we need,
Sowing Thy precious seed.
In tho’t, or word, or deed,
Oh, lead us by Thy hand.

2 May we this hour be led
In righteous paths to tread;
And, by Thy manna fed,
Oh, lead us by Thy hand.

3 As this brief fleeting day
Passes so swift away,
May we from Thee not stray,—
Oh, lead us by Thy hand.

4 And when the hour draws nigh
When death shall dim our eye,
Take us to Thee on high,—
Oh, lead us by Thy hand.
