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.

Representative Text

1. O promise sweet! He leadeth me
O’er waters wild and deep;
I will not fear the raging sea
If He my soul doth keep.

Refrain
I will trust in the promise of my Savior,
I will trust in the promise of my Savior,
I will trust in the promise of my Savior,
And He will lead me home.

2. Sometimes He leads o’er mountain height,
Or valleys dark and drear;
Yet, worn and weary, in the night
His blessèd voice I hear. [Refrain]

3. Sometimes He leads by waters still,
Where all is peace and love;
And quiet joys my bosom fill,
Like that sweet rest above. [Refrain]

4. It matters not if shadows lie
Upon my pathway here;
A golden light illumes my sky,
If only God is near. [Refrain]
