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.

Representative Text

1 The Saviour is my Guide and stay,
I could not do without Him;
He leads me gently on my way,
I could not do without Him.

Refrain:
I could not do without Jesus,
He is my refuge still;
I could not do without Jesus,
With Him I fear no ill.

2 Was ever such a Friend before?
I could not do without Him;
I’ve learned to love Him more and more,
I could not do without Him. [Refrain]

3 He scatters sunshine o’er my way,
I could not do without Him;
He fills my soul with joy each day,
I could not do without Him. [Refrain]
