Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

320. If the Light Has Gone Out

1 When the sun of your life has gone down,
And the clouds in the west turn to gold,
Endless death will to you then have come,
If the light has gone out in your soul.

Refrain:
Oh, just think how in death you would feel,
With the light growing dim in your soul;
Oh, how lonely ’twill be, oh, how still!
If the light has gone out in your soul.

2 When you come to the end of the way,
And life’s story for you has been told,
Oh, how sad all to you will appear
If the light has gone out in your soul. [Refrain]

3 When the chill winds of death ’round you steal,
And the sweat on your brow’s damp and cold,
What a dread in your life you would feel,
If the light has gone out in your soul. [Refrain]

4 When before judgment’s bar you shall stand,
And the deeds of your life have been told,
Good and evil appears, oh, what then,
If the light has gone out in your soul? [Refrain]
