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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 Will you walk alone with Jesus?
Is the narrow way your choice?
Will you walk alone with Jesus?
Will you heed His gentle voice?
Hear Him saying, “Come to me,
Though your sins as scarlet be,
I will make them white as snow,
And set you free.”

Come and walk alone with Jesus,
He will lead you where the living waters flow;
In the land of light and glory,
Where the angel choirs are singing,
All the bliss of life eternal in His presence you shall know.

2 Will you walk alone with Jesus?
You will need no better friend;
For His loving hand will lead you,
And from every foe defend;
Hear Him saying, “Never fear,
For thy help will I appear;
In the hour of greatest danger
I am near.” [Refrain]

3 Will you walk alone with Jesus?
Just a few brief, fleeting days,
And with glad triumphant millions
You shall join the endless praise;
Hear Him saying, “Come ye blest,
Enter now the promised rest,
And beside me you shall stand,
My own confessed.” [Refrain]
