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 Oh, lead me, Lord, oh, gently lead me,
The way is lonely, dark and drear;
With many sorrows my heart is weary—
Lord, give me strength my cross to bear.
Dark clouds of trial low hang about me,
No gleam of hope I see,
No ray of light for me;
Lord, lead me gently on.

Refrain:
O blessed Jesus, O loving Savior,
Oh, lead me gently and safely home;
Oh, lead me gently, oh, lead me safely,
Lord, keep me by Thy side.

2 O loving Christ, O loving Savior,
I long to hear Thy tender voice;
Speak Thou in mercy, oh, speak Thou gentle,
And I shall yet in hope rejoice.
Thy words shall gladden my drooping spirit,
Thy truth shall courage give,
I hear Thy voice and live;
Lord, lead me gently on. [Refrain]

3 I feel Thee near, my precious Savior,
My path is peaceful now, and bright;
The clouds of darkness that once beset me,
Now glorious are with love and light.
No more my burdens and griefs o’erwhelm me,
Thy face, O Christ, I see,
I know Thou lovest me;
Lord, lead me gently on. [Refrain]
