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 Lamp of my feet, Thy guidance lend,
Walk by my side, my path attend;
Led by thy hand I cannot stray,
Lamp of my feet, my Life, my Way!

Lamp of my feet, Light of my path!
Lead, oh, lead Thou me;
Star of my soul, guide and control,
Lead me nearer Thee.

2 Light of my path, illume my soul,
Help me thy glories to extol;
Fill me with peace like that above,
Light of my soul, Celestial Dove! [Refrain]

3 Star of my soul, within me shine,
Fill me with beams of joy divine;
Let me Thy faithful servant be,
Star of my soul, oh, lead thou me! [Refrain]
