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 With Christ our Pilot tried and true,
Sail on, sail on!
While sea is calm and skies are blue,
Sail on, sail on!

Refrain:
Sail on, o’er life’s wide sea,
Upon the helm His hand shall ever be;
Sail on, sail on!
O’er rolling foam,
Unto the harbor He guideth us home.
Sail on, sail on, though tempests sweep,
Our Pilot rules, He rules the raging deep;
Sail on, sail on!
Till harbor’s won, He holds the helm,
Sail on, sail on!

2 The Word divine our chart shall be,
Sail on, sail on!
To guide us over life’s wide sea,
Sail on, sail on! [Refrain]

3 Our guiding star a Father’s love,
Sail on, sail on!
It shines from heav’nly heights above,
Sail on, sail on! [Refrain]
