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 Tho’ naught of the roadway that lieth before,
I see as I journey below;
While mists from my sight hide the Saviour I love,
He goeth before me, I know.

Refrain:
He goeth before me, I know,
He marks out the path I must tread;
I journey with never a doubt or a fear,
He goeth before, He hath said.

2 Thro’ pleasant green meadows my footpath may lie,
Where sweet flowers cluster and sway;
What joy just to know He has stooped as He passed,
And planted those flow’rs by my way. [Refrain]

3 The road for my feet may be toilsome and rough,
And lead o’er the mountain’s wild crest;
I’ll falter not, knowing before me His feet
Each step of that pathway have pressed. [Refrain]

4 So whether by waters refreshing I walk,
Or thro’ the dark valley I go;
My path I may trace by His footprints so clear,
He goeth before me, I know. [Refrain]
