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

862. There's a Light

1 There’s a light shining down on my pathway today,
Causing darkness and shadows to flee;
And my soul doth rejoice as I walk in the way,
There’s a light shining down upon me.

Refrain:
There’s a light shining down, down from heaven on me,
There’s a light shines from heaven on me;
I will walk all my days in its wonderful rays,
There’s a light shines from heaven on me.

2 Once I wandered in darkness and groped in the night,
Unto Jesus for mercy I called;
He did hear my sad cry, and He opened my eyes,
And a light on my pathway did fall. [Refrain]

3 He will bless everyone who will unto Him come,
He will turn all their darkness to day;
Will you come to Him now and in lowliness bow,
That this light may shine down on your way? [Refrain]
