Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 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.
