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 us, Saviour, lead us ever,
With Thy gently guiding hand;
Lead us through the joys and sorrows,
Of an unseen future land.

Lead us, Saviour, lead us ever,
Safely guide our wand’ring feet,
Lead us on to lands of beauty,
Pastures green and meadows sweet.

2 Lead us, Saviour, lead us ever,
Without Thee afar we roam;
Lead us through the storm and darkness,
To the light and peace of home. [Refrain]
