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

1 Jesus bids us shine with a pure, clear light,
like a little candle burning in the night.
In this world of darkness so let us shine -
you in your small corner, and I in mine.

2 Jesus bids us shine, first of all for him;
well he sees and knows it, if our light grows dim.
He looks down from heaven to see us shine -
you in your small corner, and I in mine.

3 Jesus bids us shine, then, for all around;
many kinds of darkness in the world are found;
sin and want and sorrow; so we must shine -
you in your small corner, and I in mine.
