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 One step at a time, dear Savior:
I cannot take any more;
The flesh is so weak and hopeless:
I know not what is before.

One step at a time, dear Savior,
Till faith grows stronger in Thee;
One step at a time, dear Savior,
Till hope grows stronger in me.

2 One step at a time, dear Savior:
I am not walking by sight;
Keep step with my soul, dear Savior:
I walk by faith in Thy might. [Refrain]

3 One step at a time, dear Savior:
O guard my faltering feet!
Keep hold of my hand, dear Savior,
Till I my journey complete. [Refrain]

4 One step at a time, dear Savior:
Thou knowest all of my fear;
One word from Thy heart, dear Savior,
And Heaven’s mansions appear. [Refrain]
