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 Trav’ling to the better land,
O’er the desert’s scorching sand,
Father, do Thou hold my hand,
Lead me on.

Lead me, O lead me,
Lead me gently on;
Lead me, Oh, lead me,
Lead me on.

2 When at Marah, parched with heat,
I the sparkling fountain greet,
Make the bitter waters sweet,
Lead me on. [Refrain]

3 When the wilderness is drear,
Show me Elim’s palm-groves near,
With its wells as crystal clear,
Lead me on. [Refrain]

4 Tho’ the water and the fire
This, O Lord, my one desire:
With Thy love my heart inspire,
Lead me on. [Refrain]

5 When I stand on Jordan’s brink,
Do not let me fear or shrink;
Hold me, Father, lest I sink,
Lead me on. [Refrain]
