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 When weary and worn with the burdens of life,
And the soul has grown faint in the battling and strife,
Then to Thee, O my God, in my anguish I cry;
Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I.

Refrain:
Lead, O lead me!
Lead me to the Rock,
Lead me to the Rock,
Lead me to the Rock,
That is higher than I!

2 When tempted by evil to wander away
From the path Thou hast made to the realms of bright day,
Then to Thee, O my Saviour my Refuge I fly;
Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I. [Refrain]

3 When done with the ills that beset us below,
And the swelling of Jordan is near me, I know,
Then on Thee, O my Saviour my hopes I rely;
Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I. [Refrain]
