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.
Harry Plantinga

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.
