Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.

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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure site.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

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.
