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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 Loving Saviour, lead Thou me,
Lest I wander far from Thee,
I am safe when in Thy care,
Thou wilt keep from ev’ry snare.

Lead me, lead me,
Saviour, lead me all the way,
This my constant pray’r shall be,
Saviour, lead me home to Thee.

2 Oh, Thou refuge of my soul,
Hold me in divine control;
Whatsoever may betide,
Lead and keep me by Thy side. [Refrain]

3 Saviour, keep me day by day,
All along my pilgrim way;
When my earthly work is done,
Lead me home, O blessed One. [Refrain]
