We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

So, please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? 

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do. 

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. 

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,
Harry Plantinga

Take my hand

Representative Text

1 Savior, take my hand in Thine,
Take my hand, oh, take my hand;
For thorny is the way and drear,
O’er which my weary feet have come;
Nor do I see my pathway clear,
The path that I would follow home.

Savior, take my hand, oh, take my hand,
Hear my plea, O Lord, I pray;
Savior, take my hand, oh, take my hand,
Into Thine, O Lord, today.

2 Savior, hold my hand in Thine,
Hold my hand, oh, hold my hand;
For by the tempter would I fail,
Shouldst Thou withdraw Thy hand from me;
The dangers great appall my soul;
I cling, I cling and hold to Thee. [Refrain]

3 Savior, keep my hand in Thine,
Keep my hand, oh, keep my hand;
Then I shall safely pass the way,
Though dark and dreary it may be,
Until I reach that blessèd day
When I shall rest in Heav’n with Thee. [Refrain]
