Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? 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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1. Step by step, O loving Savior,
In Thine own appointed way,
In the path which Thou hast chosen,
Lead us on, from day to day.

Refrain
Lead us on, O lead us ever,
Till we all Thy face shall see:
For our hope is in Thy mercy,
We are trusting only Thee.

2. Lead us on, though stormy billows
Wild and dark before us rise;
Let Thy precious bow of promise
Shine resplendent from the skies. [Refrain]

3. Lead us on, our souls defending,
Till the latest storm is past,
And we hear our loved ones singing,
Welcome, welcome home at last! [Refrain]
