Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 Show us Thy way, O Lord, show us Thy way,
Alone we cannot go, for we would stray,
Thy way is always bright,
Thy path is always right,
Keep us by Thy great might,
O Lord divine.

2 Show us Thy way, O Lord, show us Thy way,
We’ll follow none but Thee, cost what it may,
Our way would lead us down,
Our way is always wrong,
Then lead us, is our song,
O Lord divine.

3 Show us Thy way, O Lord, show us Thy way,
Our God we’ll trust but Thee, hear while we pray,
Purge us from ev’ry sin,
Cleanse us, without, within
Make us completely clean,
O Lord divine.

4 Show us Thy way, O Lord, show us Thy way,
Brighter the pathway glows, as we obey,
When Thou dost call us home,
Grant us Thy glad “Well done,”
And praise be Thine alone,
O Lord divine.
