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.

1 Like a chime of silver bells
In the darkness ringing,
Comes a voice that ever tells
Of the Shepherd’s care;
To the wand’rer from the fold,
Love is ever bringing,
Tidings from the gates of gold,
Of a welcome there.

"Follow Me," O hear the Shepherd saying,
Seek the door to pastures ever fair;
Heed, O heed thy Savior’s tender pleading;
Follow Him and find a welcome there.

2 Lost one, will you close your ears
To the magic story,
That can charm away your fears
When earth’s joys depart?
Shall the spell of evil hide
From your eyes the glory,
That forever will abide,
With the pure in heart? [Refrain]

3 Lo! the tempter doth deceive,
Luring you to sadness;
Then he mocks you while you grieve,
Pointing to despair;
From his fetters break away,
Seek the path of gladness;
Spurn the pleasures that decay,
Of their sting beware. [Refrain]
