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. My Father leads me, and content,
I trust in Him to choose my way;
I know that walking by His side
My feet may never go astray;
I know my Father leadeth me,
He leadeth me, He leadeth me.

He leadeth me,
I know my Father leadeth me.

2. My Father leads, and oftentimes,
Thro’ thorny paths, my weary feet;
But by His side I need not fear
Tho’ blinding storms around me beat;
For as my days my strength shall be—
I know my Father leadeth me. [Refrain]

3. And when I reach the river wide
Whose stormy waters darkly flow,
He’ll hold my hand and guide me safe
Into the haven I would go;
And there my song shall ever be,
I know my Father leadeth me. [Refrain]
