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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1. ’Tis so sweet to walk with Jesus,
Step by step and day by day;
Stepping in His very footprints,
Walking with Him all the way.

Step by step, step by step,
I would walk with Jesus,
All the day, all the way,
Keeping step with Jesus.

2. ’Tis so safe to walk with Jesus,
Leaning hard upon His arm,
Following closely where He leads us,
None can hurt and naught can harm. [Refrain]

3. Step by step I’ll walk with Jesus,
Just a moment at a time;
Heights I have not wings to soar to
Step by step my feet can climb. [Refrain]

4. Jesus keep me closer—closer,
Step by step and day by day;
Stepping in Thy very footprints
Walking with Thee all the way. [Refrain]
