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.

Representative Text

1 There's an old, old path,
And the sun shines through
Life's dark storm clouds
From its home of blue,

In this old, old path made strangely sweet
By the touch divine of his blessed feet.

2 Find the old, old path,
'Twill be ever new,
Fro the Savior walks
All the way with you, [Refrain]

3 In this old, old path,
Are my friends most dear,
And I walk with them,
With the angels near, [Refrain]

4 'Tis an old, old path,
Shadowed vales between,
Yet I fearless walk
With the Nazarene, [Refrain]
