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.

1 A light on my pathway to banish the night,
A beacon to guide me and lead me aright,
A radiant sunbeam that shineth so bright,
That’s what His love means to me.

Refrain:
That’s what His love means to me,
That’s what His love means to me;
A light on my way, my comfort and stay,
That’s what His love means to me.

2 A shelter from tempest and storm-winds that blow,
A safe, sure retreat wheresoever I go,
The source of all comfort that here I may know,
That’s what His love means to me. [Refrain]

3 A wellspring of water ‘mid desert and heat,
A rest from my labor, a joy full, complete;
A peace calm and holy, a fellowship sweet,
That’s what His love means to me. [Refrain]
