Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 O Christ of God who lived for me,
With joy I lift my voice to Thee,
And pray that Thou wouldst hear;
As Thou didst die upon the tree
To save my soul and make it free,
Be Thou my helper near.

2 And should I wander far from Thee
O’er desert wastes of land and sea,
Still be Thou at my side;
For kept by Thee I cannot stray,
Except to find a better way,
My Saviour, and my Guide.

3 And when my work on earth is o’er,
The sun has set to rise no more,
And night is sweeping by;
Then through the darkness I would see
Thy radiant face look down on me,
A beacon in the sky.
