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

611. Seall Thall Tighinn Bhon Ear

1. Seall thall tighinn bhon ear le sealladh bho Nèamh,
Tha daoine nan cabhaig a' leantainn na rèilt;
San stàball le leanabh tha Moire cho sèimh
Am prasaich, gun dhearain, gràdh Dhè dhuinn.
O reult, thoir dhomh soillse 's an oidhch' a' fàs dorch',
Mi creidsinn do gheallaidh, mo thaic thu 's mo threòir;
Cuir solas air slighe a rithist led ghlòir,
Ach am faic mi am prasaich do ghràdh dhomh.

2. Thàing ainglean gu talamh le moladh is seinn,
Air mòintich gach cìobair le chaoraich am faing;
Theich cadal is leum iad, le aoibhneas toirt taing,
Is ruith iad nan deann chun an stàbaill.
O reult, thoir dhomh soillse 's an oidhch' a' fàs dorch',
Mi creidsinn do gheallaidh, mo thaic thu 's mo threòir;
Cuir solas air slighe a rithist led ghlòir,
Ach am faic mi am prasaich do ghràdh dhomh.

3. Cha sguir ainglean a chaoidh a' moladh a ghràidh,
San reult bidh soillse a dh'oidhche 's a là;
Bidh'm fonn ud nan cluasan 's nan crìdhe gu bràth
Am prasaich, san stàball, gràdh Dhè dhhuinn.
O reult, thoir dhomh soillse 's an oidhch' a' fàs dorch',
Mi creidsinn do gheallaidh, mo thaic thu 's mo threòir;
Cuir solas air slighe a rithist led ghlòir,
Ach am faic mi am prasaich do ghràdh dhomh.
