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 them, my God, to Thee,
Lead them to thee,
These children dear of mine,
Thou gavest me;
Oh, by thy love divine,
Lead them, my God, to thee,
Lead them, my God, to thee,
Lead them to thee.

2 When earth looks bright and fair,
Festive and gay,
Let no delusive snare,
Lure them away;
But from temptation’s pow’r,
Lead them, my God, to thee,
Lead them, my God, to thee,
Lead them to thee.

3 E’en for such little ones,
Christ came a child,
And thro’ this world of sin,
Moved undefiled;
Oh, for his sake, I pray,
Lead them, my God, to thee,
Lead them, my God, to thee,
Lead them to thee.

4 Yea, tho’ my faith be dim,
I would believe
That thou this precious gift
Wilt now receive;
Oh, take their young hearts now,
Lead them, my God, to thee,
Lead them, my God, to thee,
Lead them to thee.
