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

62. I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say (Shine on Me)

1 I heard the voice of Jesus say,
"Come unto me and rest, and rest;
lay down, thou weary one, lay down
thy head upon my breast."

Refrain:
Shine on me, shine on me,
let the light from the lighthouse shine on me.
Oh, shine on me, shine on me,
let the light from the lighthouse shine on me.

2 With pitying eyes the Prince of Peace
beheld our helpless grief, our grief;
he saw, and oh, amazing love!
He came to our relief. [Refrain]
