Dear Friend of Hymnary,

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

Full Text

1. Leave me not, for I am lonely,
And the way I cannot see;
Lest I wander into danger,
Keep me, Savior, close to Thee.

Savior, Savior,
Keep me near to Thee;
Lest I wander into danger,
Keep me, Savior, near to Thee.

2. Leave me not, for darkness gathers
Round about the path I tread;
Leave me not, but let my footsteps
Ever by Thy hand be led. [Refrain]

3. Leave me not, for sin is near me;
With temptation life is fraught;
Then through all life’s toilsome journey,
O, my Savior, leave me not. [Refrain]
