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.
1 A beacon bright the Christian stands,
Upon the shore of time;
A lighthouse built on solid rock,
That rears its head sublime.
Look to the light house, sailor,
It tells of danger near;
Look to the lighthouse, sailor,
And guide thy vessel clear.
2 A tower high the Christian stands,
A clear and shining light,
To cast a gleam across the sea
Of earth’s dark, gloomy night. [Chorus]
3 Grand sentinel upon life’s coast,
Be faithful, true, and brave;
And ever keep your light ablaze,
Benighted souls to save. [Chorus]
