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

143. The Lord is My Light

1 The Lord is my light, my star of morn,
The dawn of my hope in life that’s heaven-born;
The dark shades of night away must fly,
When love divine within doth shine,
From God on high.

Refrain:
Shine on, O Love divine,
My light and my salvation ever be;
Shine on, in splendor bright,
To guide my steps aright.
Shine on, O Love divine,
My light and my salvation ev’ry be;
Thou art the Truth, the Way,
That shall lead to perfect day.

2 The Lord is my light, my radiant way,
My morning of joy that glorifies the day;
No cloud need o’ercast my happy sky,
When love divine within doth shine,
From God on high. [Refrain]

3 The Lord is my light, all lights in one,
The moon and the stars, the glowing midday sun;
No bright, glitt’ring orb need stud the sky,
When love divine within doth shine,
From God on high. [Refrain]
