Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Please, before you close this box, would you today consider making a donation to Hymnary. Did you know that more than two million people came here in the first four months of 2017? These are people who have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site, and they are grateful for the resources they find here.

But, as you can imagine, keeping this site going does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue.

So, if you benefit from, 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 through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

Full Text

When the morn with golden ray,
Ushers in the new-born day,
Brighter be Thy beams, I pray,
Jesu, Light of men.

When the joys of earth are blest,
When I deem its gifts the best,
Lead me to the land of rest,
Jesu, Light of men.

When the clouds around my head
Fill the soul with doubt and dread,
Let Thy gracious light be shed,
Jesu, Light of men.

When the darkness veils the light,
When the day is lost in night,
Shine in beams of radiance bright,
Jesu, Light of men.

When in night of grief I mourn,
When with pain my heart is torn,
Come in brightness, like the morn,
Jesu, Light of men.

When the vale of death I tread,
Clouds of darkness round my head,
On the path Thy brightness shed,
Jesu, Light of men.

When I dwell in light Divine,
When the bliss of heaven is mine,
Light of lights, all praise be Thine,
Jesu, Light of men.
