Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

Walking with Jesus, O fellowship so sweet

Representative Text

1 Walking with Jesus, oh, fellowship sweet!
Walking with Him hour by hour;
Talking with Him, as I work for His cause,
Trusting in His mighty power.

Walking and talking with Jesus, my friend,
Walking and talking with Him;
Oh what rapture divine, oh, what happiness mine,
As I walk and talk with my friend.

2 Walking with Jesus helps burdens grow light,
Making the trials grow dim;
Telling Him all of my joy and my cares,
Casting it all upon Him. [Refrain]

3 Walking with Jesus while doing His will,
Wearing the yoke of His love;
Learning the patience that comes from His strength,
Gaining the grace from above. [Refrain]

4 Walking with Jesus each day of my life,
Walking with Jesus, my friend;
Talking with Jesus as we journey on,
Till all life’s journeys shall end. [Refrain]
