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.

Think on the way, O thou storm driven child

Representative Text

1. Think on thy way, O thou storm-driven child;
Out on the ocean so dark and so wild,
Far from thy God you are drifting today,—
Think on thy way, think on thy way.

2. Think on thy way: without Pilot or Guide,
Far from the shore with no Friend by your side,
Thoughtless of Him who would fain be your stay,
Think on thy way, think on thy way.

3. Think on thy way, God will not let you go;
His mighty arm can destroy ev'ry foe;
Trust Him today, all His mandates obey;
Think on thy way, think on thy way.

Coda: (After last verse only)
Think on thy way, think on thy way,
Is it leading you to God and home?
Think on thy way.
