During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

So, before you close this box and move on to use the many resources on Hymnary.org, please prayerfully consider whether you might be able to make a gift to support our work.

Representative Text

1 Would you travel safely
Thro’ this world below,
Sure of faithful guidance
Everywhere you go?
Overcome all evil
Every passing day?
Keep your eyes on Jesus
All along the way!

Keep your eyes on Jesus,
Follow where he leads;
He will bear your burden,
Satisfy your needs;
Keep your eyes on Jesus
Every passing day;
Keep your eyes on Jesus
All along the way!

2 Would you live more fully
In the perfect love?
Knowing your petitions
Will be heard above;
Trust his precious promise,
Each command obey,
Keep your eyes on Jesus
All along the way! [Refrain]

3 Would you be a blessing
Unto all you meet,
Be a willing list’ner
At the Master’s feet?
Heir to his own kingdom,
Land of endless day?
Keep your eyes on Jesus
All along the way! [Refrain]
