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

A glory in the Word we find

A glory in the Word we find

Full Text

1 A glory in the word we find
When grace restores our sight;
But sin has darkened all the mind,
And vail'd the heav'nly light.
And vail'd the heav'nly light.

2 When God's own Spirit clears our view,
How bright the doctrines shine!
Their holy fruits and sweetness show
The author is divine.
The author is divine.

3 How blest are we, with open face
To view thy glory, Lord,
And all thy image here to trace,
Reflected in thy word!
Reflected in thy word!

4 O teach us, as we look, to grow
In holiness and love,
That we may long to see and know
Thy glorious face above.
Thy glorious face above.
