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

216. My Life, My Light, My Way

1 O Christ, my Lord, Thou art my life and light,
Thy word is truth, and in Thy presence bright,
No darkness can abide, no shade of night,
My life, my light, my way.

O life and light be with me on my way,
Apart from thee my soul must helpless stray,
Lead me, I pray Thee, to Thy perfect day,
My life, my light, my way.

2 Thou seest my weary heart, dear Saviour mine;
Thy rest and peace impart, and cause to shine
Thy light in ev’ry part with beams divine,
My life, my light, my way. [Refrain]

3 I hear Thy loving voice that bids me come,
Thou art my only choice, with Thee is home;
IN Thee will I rejoice, nor from Thee roam,
My life, my light, my way. [Refrain]

4 And when Thy face I see in mansions bright,
When faith is wondrously transformed to sight
I’ll still be praising Thee for life and light,
My life, my light, my way. [Refrain]
