Dear Friend of Hymnary,

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

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, 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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

1. Show me the way, dear Savior!
The shadows are falling fast;
And thro’ the clouds above me
No ray of light is cast;
The storm is wildly raging,
The thunders loudly roar;
The restless waves are dashing
Against the wreck-strewn shore.

Show me the way, dear Savior
That Thou wouldst have me go;
Show me the way, dear Savior,
For Thou alone dost know.

2. Show me the way, dear Savior!
The night is so wild and dark;
I cannot stem the current,
Unless Thou guide my bark;
Oh, fiercer grows the tempest,
And wilder rolls the sea!
Help! help me O my Savior!
I trust alone in Thee. [Refrain]

3. Show me the way, dear Savior!
My courage is failing fast;
My storm tossed bark is sinking;
Shall I be lost at last?
Come nearer, nearer to me,
And speak the word of peace
That stills the angry waters,
And bids the tempest cease. [Refrain]
