So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

1. Thou has been our guide this day,
Thou hast led us all the way,
Thou hast been our sun and shield,
Grateful hearts to Thee we yield
While Thou art nigh.

Refrain
Holy, holy, holy, Lord God of Hosts!
Heav’n and earth are full of Thee!
Heav’n and earth are praising Thee,
O Lord most high!

2. For the gift of strength and health,
And for friendship’s boundless wealth,
For the power to think aright,
For religion’s guiding light,
We give Thee thanks. [Refrain]

3. Guard us through the hours of night,
And with morn’s returning light,
Grant to each of us, we pray,
Strength to serve Thee all the day,
For Thine we are. [Refrain]
