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,

892. Rays of Hope

1 There are some rays of hope divine,
To cheer the darkest heart;
Around the cross they ever shine,
Where life anew may start.

Refrain:
Heaven is free, heaven is free,
Sinner, believe, in heaven you may shine;
Come and be free, come and be free;
Wonderful love, that heaven may be thine.

2 Despondent soul, can you not see
Hope gleaming from above?
Oh, look once more to Calvary,
And know that God is love. [Refrain]

3 Though shame and guilt oppress thy soul,
Thy heart as adamant,
Yet Jesus will thy name enroll,
If thou wilt but repent. [Refrain]

4 Thy life of sin now weighs thee down,
And death and hell are near;
But heaven wills thee yet a crown,
And angels want thee there. [Refrain]

5 O guilty one, though bound in chains
Of dark infernal pow’r,
The grace of God supremely reigns
To save thee in this hour. [Refrain]
