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 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 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 Sorrow here is not a stranger,
Care appears with ev’ry day;
And I meet with win and danger
As I walk the pilgrim’s way.
Saviour, keep thy cross before me,
Thus by faith thy presence show;
Saviour keep its shadow o’er me,
While a pilgrim here below:
Saviour keep its shadow o’er me,
While a pilgrim, while a pilgrim here below.

2 Storms in life are oft prevailing,
And the shadows often fall;
Still, with Christian zeal unfailing,
I would meet and brave them all.
Saviour, be a Rock to hide me,
And to me thy grace bestow;
Savior, be a Star to guide me,
While a pilgrim here below :
Savior, be a Star to guide me,
While a pilgrim, while a pilgrim here below.

3 Hope and peace in thee possessing,
By the Word that is divine;
And thy holy name confessing,
Faith is in this song of mine.
Saviour, help me tell thy story,
Thus the precious seed to sow;
Saviour, help me sing thy glory,
While a pilgrim here below.
