We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Representative Text

1 O soul by evil driven,
Needing both light and cheer,
That hope to you be given,
Jesus your Savior hear.

"I am the way, the truth and the life;
No man cometh unto the Father but by Me;
I am the way, the truth and the life;
No man cometh unto the Father but by Me."

2 In search of worldly pleasure,
Downward you go each day,
While others lay up treasure,
Following life’s true way. [Refrain]

3 Just let the Savior guide you,
Happy you then will be,
For He will stay beside you,
Keeping you pure and free. [Refrain]

4 If you would meet in Heaven
Those that you miss today,
The Blessèd One must lead you—
He is the only way. [Refrain]
