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 Hymnary.org, 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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 Weary one, oppressed with care,
Wouldst thou from these trials flee?
Courage take, look up, be strong,
Step by step He leadeth thee.

Refrain:
Step by step, step by step,
Step by step He leadeth thee;
Step by step, step by step,
So thy Father leadeth thee.

2 Fear not, as a trembling child,
Dangers that may never be;
Only hold thy Father’s hand,
Step by step He leadeth thee. [Refrain]

3 Troubles that like mountains seem
Melt away like mist at sea;
Trust the everlasting arm,
Step by step He leadeth thee. [Refrain]

4 When the setting sun of life
Gilds with beauty mount and lea,
Passing to the spirit-land,
Step by step He leadeth thee. [Refrain]
