Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 O King of love, King of love, be Thou our star today,
Guide Thou our steps, guide our steps o’er life’s uncertain way,
Though clouds arise, Thy light unfold
Till safe we stand beyond the gates, the gates of gold.

Refrain:
O King of love, King of love our everlasting light,
Guide Thou our steps, guide our steps
Till ended is the night
And we stand safe at last beyond gates of gold.

2 O King of love, King of love, defend us by Thy pow’r!
Teach us Thy will, teach Thy will, through ev’ry passing hour.
Hear Thou our cry, each burden bear
Our sins forgive we pray, our griefs and sorrows share. [Refrain]

3 O King of love, King of love, as children we would plead,
Look Thou from heav’n, look from heav’n, behold our ev’ry need.
Though clouds arise, Thy light unfold
Till safe we stand beyond the gates, the gates of gold. [Refrain]
