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 safely on by the narrow way,
From the shores of time to the realms of day;
By the cross of Christ may I ever stand,
As I journey on to the better land.

Refrain:
Lead me on, lead me on,
By the straight and narrow way,
Lead me on, lead me on,
To the realms of endless day.

2 With a shepherd’s care thro’ the night and day,
Keep me close to Thee lest I go astray;
Lead me safely on by Thy tender love,
Thro’ this world of sin to my home above. [Refrain]

3 Thro’ the storms of life, ’mid the ocean’s foam,
Lead me safely on to my heav’nly home;
At the fount of life on the other shore,
Let me freely drink till I thirst no more. [Refrain]
