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

He leadeth me

Representative Text

1 Not always in the pastures green,
Where flow'rs and quiet streams are seen,
He leadeth me.
Ah, no! Sometimes his loving hand
Leads where I cannot understand,
Where shadows be.

Where Jesus leads 'tis safe to go,
Tho' storm clouds lower and tempests blow;
I cannot fear, since this I know,
He leadeth me.

2 Not always in the sunshine sweet;
Sometimes where loud the tempests beat,
He leadeth me.
Yet by my side in love he stands,
And cheers my heart and holds my hands
So graciously! [Chorus]

3 What matter if the way be drear?
If Satan tempt my heart to fear?
To him I flee.
I ask not why he leads me so,
For me it is enough to know
He leadeth me. [Chorus]
