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.
1 Steps are before me, dear Saviour,
Marking the path thou hast trod;
So would my feet be progressing
Upward and onward to God.
More of thy likeness, dear Saviour,
Less of myself I would see;
Born in thine image, and growing
More and more like unto thee.
2 Daily thy work was appointed,
Wrought by no hand but thine own;
So in my field I would labor,
Tho’ it be small and unknown. [Refrain]
3 Burdens were laid on thy shoulders,
Meekly thou suffered the cross;
So would I take up my trials,
Counting them gain and not loss. [Refrain]
4 Not for thyself, but for others,
Living and dying for love;
So would I daily be spending,
Till shall meet thee above. [Refrain]Source: Joyful Sound: a collection of new hymns and music with familiar selections #57
