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, 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.

1 O Lord our Light, our Hope, our Way,
Do Thou our pathway guide,
O lead us on, Thy care display,
Till we in Thee abide.

O Lord, our Life, our Hope, our All,
Our Way where’er we be,
Give us Thy strength to fight the fight,
‘Till we shall victors be.

2 O shine on us, as shadows fall,
Thy love to know each day,
Our hopes renew, as courage fails,
And doubts obscure our way. [Refrain]

3 We know we oft, so oft repine,
When clouds pass o’er our way,
And yet—if we will let Thee guide,
How perfect is our day! [Refrain]

4 O Lord our Life, our Hope, our Way,
O guide us ever on,
‘Till we at last in perfect bless,
A crown of life have won. [Refrain]
