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

201. Love Is Shining

1 All the future years are held within the Father’s keeping;
On the pages yet unturned, we cannot read a line;
But His promises, like stars, will light the night of weeping;
All along our pilgrim way, His word will shine.

Refrain:
Love is shining all along our way;
God is caring for us every day;
Lord, whatever changes in our lives may be,
Oh, may our hearts be stayed on Thee!

2 Press with courage on your way, for Jesus goes before us;
He will strengthen us anew, for tasks He may assign;
Let the children of the King ring out a happy chorus;
All along our pilgrim way, His grace will shine. [Refrain]

3 Ever will we trust His word, and trust our Father’s caring;
Ever will we rest our faith upon His truth divine;
Looking to the mercy seat, in joy we go declaring,
All along our pilgrim way, His love will shine. [Refrain]
