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.

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.
