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

Representative Text

1 O may Thy word, my God,
A light before me shine,
To guide my feet upon thy way
To that blest house of Thine.
O may Thy word, my God,
My guide and counsel be,
When trials and temptations come,
To turn my thoughts to Thee.

2 O may Thy word, my God,
My comfort be, and cheer,
When friends are false, or death shall take
From me the loved and dear.
O may Thy word, my God,
Like lighthouse on the sea,
Show where the cruel breakers,
And make a path to Thee.

3 O may Thy word, my God,
Beam like the gentle moon
Upon my eyes that waiting look,
While shadows round me loom.
O may Thy word, my God,
So full of truth and love,
Teach every heart to worship Thee,
And look in trust above.
