We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

1 Take Thou my hand, and lead me—
Choose Thou my way!
“Not as I will,” O Father,
Teach me to say.
What tho’ the storms may gather,
Thou knowest best;
Safe in Thy holy keeping,
There would I rest.

2 Take Thou my hand, and lead me—
Lord, I am Thine!
Fill with Thy Holy Spirit
This heart of mine:
Then in the hour of trial
Strong shall I be—
Ready to do, or suffer,
Dear Lord, for Thee.

3 Take Thou my hand, and lead me,
Lord, as I go;
Into Thy perfect image
Help me to grow.
Still in Thine own pavilion
Shelter Thou me:
Keep me, O Father, keep me,
Close, close to Thee!
