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

1. When lost among the wild, dark mountains,
Far, far from Thee,
I heard Thy gentle voice, my Savior,
Calling in love to me.

Refrain
Safe, within Thy arms of mercy,
Never more to roam;
O, let me rest in peace forever,
Safe in my heart’s dear home.

2. When lost among the wild, dark mountains,
Sad was my cry,
Till softly came the words so tender,
Fear not, for here am I. [Refrain]

3. O teach me to adore and praise Thee,
Savior divine;
Now I have made a full surrender,
All that I am is Thine. [Refrain]

4. Wherever Thou wilt lead, I’ll follow
Close, close to Thee;
One prayer alone my soul is breathing:
Savior, abide with me. [Refrain]
