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.

Representative Text

1 My Father will not let me fall!
His strong and loving arms enfold me;
To Him I trust my life, my all,
And know that He will safely hold me.

Just as he promised, promised to do,
When first to Him I trembling came;
Now I have trusted, proven Him true,
Hallelujah to His name!

2 My Savior will not let me stray!
The path He trod is plain before me;
And He who said, "I am the Way"
Is watching, ever watching o’er me. [Refrain]

3 I trust Him as a little child,
Content beneath His wings to hide me;
Tho’ all around is rough and wild,
He walks the path of peace beside me. [Refrain]

4 His love will still remember me
In life, in death, in joy, in sorrow;
Whate’er betide, He still will be
My guide today, my hope tomorrow. [Refrain]
