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 Lead me, lead me,
Lead me, precious Saviour,
Into the narrow way,
Into the narrow way.

Fold me, fold me,
Fold me to thy bosom,
And may I never stray, oh, never stray,
And I will praise thee evermore, yes, evermore,
And I will praise thee evermore, yes, evermore.

2 I will love thee,
Ever, ever love thee;
May sinful thoughts depart,
Oh, take them from my heart. [Refrain]

3 Lead me, fold me,
Guide, and ever keep me,
And thanks my heart will give,
Dear Saviour, while I live. [Refrain]
