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

78. O Grant Us Light

1 O grant us light, that we may know
the wisdom thou alone canst give;
that truth may guide where'er we go,
and virtue bless where'er we live.

2 O grant us light, that we may learn
how dead is life from thee apart,
how sure is joy for all who turn
to thee an undivided heart.

3 O grant us light, in grief and pain,
to lift our burdened hearts above,
and count the very cross a gain,
and bless our Father's hidden love.

4 O grant us light, when, soon or late,
all earthly scenes shall pass away,
in thee to find the open gate
to deathless home and endless day.
