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

59. Jesus, the Light of the World (We'll Walk in the Light)

1 Hark! the herald angels sing,
Jesus, the Light of the world;
"Glory to the new-born King,"
Jesus, the Light of the world.

Refrain:
We’ll walk in the light, beautiful light,
come where the dewdrops of mercy are bright.
Shine all around us by day and by night,
Jesus, the Light of the world.

2 Joyful, all you nations, rise,
Jesus, the Light of the world;
join the triumph of the skies;
Jesus, the Light of the world. [Refrain]

3 Christ, by highest heav'n adored,
Jesus, the Light of the world;
Christ, the everlasting Lord!
Jesus, the Light of the world. [Refrain]

4 Hail, the heav'en-born Prince of Peace!
Jesus, the Light of the world;
hail, the Sun of righteousness!
Jesus, the Light of the world. [Refrain]
