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 Pilot me, O gracious Saviour,
For the storms of life beat hard;
Helpless I without Thy guidance,
Be Thou near to guide and guard.

Refrain:
Guide me, O my loving Saviour,
Ever be my guide;
Through the morn of youth
Be ever at my side;
No matter where I go,
Or what my lot may be,
I know I’m ever safe with Thee;
Guide me, O my loving Saviour,
Ever be my guide;
Through the morn of youth
Be ever at my side;
And no matter where I go,
Or what my lot may be,
I may safely, surely trust in Thee.

2 All unknown the future danger,
All unknown the farther shore;
Guide my barque safe to Thy haven,
Still for me the breakers roar. [Refrain]

3 Bid my fainting heart take courage,
Trusting Thee I fear no ill;
Though the storms may o’er me gather,
Thou can’st all their raging still. [Refrain]
