Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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 Hymnary.org, 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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 Let me walk in the path which my Savior hath trod,
Let me follow so close by His side;
For by trusting in Him I am happy and free,
In the fold of His love let me hide.

Refrain:
In His love let me hide,
In His love let me hide;
For by trusting in Him, I am happy and free,
In the fold of His love let me hide.

2 Let my heart e’er be fixed on my treasures above,
Let the pleasures of earth fade away;
For there’s nothing so lovely as Jesus to me,
Let me ne’er from His love go astray. [Refrain]

3 Do you ask why I love Him the dearest of all,
Why so freely I yield unto Him?
’Tis because He has loved me, and died on the cross,
My poor soul lost in sin to redeem. [Refrain]

4 It is blessed to serve Him and do His good will,
For so precious to me is His love;
Let my talents and time all be given to Him,
Till He calls me to meet Him above. [Refrain]
