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,

Full Text

1 Step by step my feet are treading
In the old and blessed way,
In the path which Thou hast taught me,
Growing brighter day by day.

All my journey, O my Savior,
This my willing task shall be,
Hoping, trusting, watching, praying,
Casting all my care on Thee.

2 Step by step Thy voice I follow;
Wheresoe’er it bids me go
Thou wilt hold my hand and lead me,
For Thy word has told me so. [Refrain]

3 Though I pass through deepest waters,
Yet the waves will not prevail;
Thou hast promised to be with me,
And Thy promise cannot fail. [Refrain]

4 Thus within Thy holy keeping,
Guarded safe from every fear,
I can never doubt Thy goodness,
Never doubt a friend so dear. [Refrain]
