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

Passing through a lonely way

Representative Text

1. Passing thro' a lonely way,
Mists deceiving, cloud my day;
Why should I my footsteps stay?
Jesus walks with me.

Jesus walks with me.
In the narrow way;
I will follow Him each day,
Till His face I see.

2. Though my trials heavy be,
He can all my danger see,
Bring me joy and victory.
Jesus walks with me. [Chorus]

3. Though in sorrow I may weep,
Though in death I fall asleep,
Through the valley dark and deep
He will walk with me. [Chorus]

4. When the judgment day shall break,
And all hearts with fear shall quake,
For His loved ones joy shall wake.
He will walk with me. [Chorus]

Stanton, Frederick S. (New Bedford, Massachusetts, December 20, 1857--October 1, 1915, New Bedford). Held a Bachelor of Music degree and was ordained to the Advent Christian ministry. He held pastorates at Hudson Falls, New York and Lawrence, Mass. Ill health and a final paralysis limited activity in his later years, although he supplied in various churches around New Bedford. He wrote words and music to a number of hymns, and composed the music for other Advent Christian hymn-writers. He was secretary of the Southern Massachusetts District Conference of his denomination. He contributed to the preparation of several of its hymnals, and was co-editor of The Golden Sheaf (1898), Carols of Hope (1906) and The Advent Christian Hymnal (1913).… Go to person page >
