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

Lead me, blessed Jesus

Representative Text

1. Lead me, blessed Jesus,
By thy guiding hand;
Should temptations cross my path,
Help me to withstand.
Make thy grace sufficient
Always sin to shun;
Closely walking with thee,
Till my course is run.

2. Take me, gracious Master,
By thy gentle hand,
May I seek to know thy will,
Yield to thy command.
Direct thou my pathway,
And should thorns infest,
Order all my footsteps,
Show me what is best.

3. Guide me, loving Saviour,
All my pilgrim way,
Keep my heart so near to thine
That I shall not stray.
Should the skies be lowering,
And distress allowed,
Let some silver lining
Tinge the gloomy cloud.

4. Come, thou dear Redeemer,
Claim me as thine own;
So control my daily life,
Make my heart thy throne.
Cleanse me by thy power,
That from sin set free,
I shall use my talents
Give my strength to thee.
