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 Let me walk with thee, dear Saviour,
For the storm-clouds, sweeping low
From mine eyes have hid the pathway,
And I know not where to go.

Let me walk with thee, dear Saviour,
Draw me near, and nearer thee,
In thine own, my weak hand holding,
Thou alone my strength must be.

2 Let me walk with thee, dear Saviour,
There is safety by thy side,
Though the shadows close around me,
Left alone I wander wide. [Refrain]

3 Let me walk with thee, dear Saviour,
‘Mid the darkness deep uphold
All my steps in tender mercy,
Let thy love my life enfold. [Refrain]

4 Let me walk with thee, dear Saviour,
Keep me ever near to thee,
Through life’s fitful journey ever
Thou my hope, my light shalt be. [Refrain]
