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 Where art thou steering, brother,
While sailing o’er life’s sea?
Before thee are the breakers,
And danger there may be.

Refrain:
The Light, The Light, my brother!
It stands on yonder height,
Christ marks the path of danger,
His word the Beacon Light.

2 Oh, many barks have stranded,
Where quick-sands hidden lie!
Then keep within the channel,
The Light before thine eye. [Refrain]

3 For vessels large and noble,
Upon the rocks will break!
And oft the strongest natures,
Before temptations shake. [Refrain]
