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.

A Friend to Man

Let me travel the road, the road of life

Tune: [Let me travel the road, the road of life]
Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Let me travel the road, the road of life,
Where the races of men press on,
The men who are weak from their load of sin,
And the men who are good and strong,
I would not look with a scorner’s eye,
Nor hurl the cynic’s ban,
Let me travel the road, the road of life,
And be a friend to man.

2 Let me see as I travel upon my way,
On the great highway of life,
The men who press on with the ardor of hope,
And the men who are taint with strife,
Let me turn not away from their smiles and tears,
Both part of an all-wise plan,
Let me travel the road, the road of life,
And be a friend to man.

3 Let me travel the road, the road of life,
Where some sin-burdened soul I’ll meet,
Let me be a balm to his aching heart,
And a guide to his wayward feet,
Let me tell him of Christ who has died to save,
Let me give him salvation’s plan,
Let me travel the road, the road of life,
And be a friend to man.
