Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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, 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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

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]
