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

Not One Step More Heavenly Father

Representative Text

1 Not one step more, Heav'nly Father,
Would I take without Thy call;
Prone to race and rush — oh, rather
At Thy feet now would I fall!
Eyes, be blind, for God to view it;
Feet be stopp'd, leave Him the road;
Hands can only touche to rue it;
soul, be still, know He is God!

2 Praise to God! He often cresses
Plans and schemes poor elf has form'd,
Ad for reckon'd gains have losses
Sprung where God's dark purpose storm'd,
But I bless Him that His thunder,
Spake His grace into my soul,
And my heart melts at the wonder
God has brought good from the whole.

3 Gourds have perish'd, but I would not
Like impatient Jonah be;
Gog is God, and oh, I could not
Trace my road so well as He1
Darkest hour before the dawning,
Shadows thickest just before,
Lifting, show they'r but the awning
Drawn around our Father's door.

4 Bless His name! He ever mindeth
His Blood-Covenant with me;
And the would that trusts Him findeth
Good in all life's mystery:
so I worship, heart adoring,
God's kind Providence, and cease
All my fretful ways, imploring
God's forgiveness and His peace.
