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

476. Eternal Beam of Light Divine

1 Eternal Beam of light divine,
Fountain of unexhausted love,
in whom the Father’s glories shine,
through earth beneath, and heav'n above:

2 Jesus, the weary wand'rer’s rest,
give me thine easy yoke to bear,
with steadfast patience arm my breast,
with spotless love and holy fear.

3 Thankful, I take the cup from thee,
prepared and mingled by thy skill,
though bitter to the taste it be,
pow'rful the wounded soul to heal.

4 Be thou, O Rock of ages, nigh;
so shall each murm'ring thought be gone,
and grief and fear and care shall fly,
ss clouds before the mid-day sun.

5 Speak to my warring passions, “Peace”'
day to my wounded heart, “Be still!”
Thy power my strength and fortress is,
and all things serve thy sovereign will.

6 O death, where is thy sting? Where now
thy boasted victory, O grave?
Who shall contend with God? or who
can hurt whom God delights to save?
