We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 All ye saints of light proclaim,
Jesus, the Light of the world;
Life and mercy in His name,
Jesus, the Light of the world.

Refrain:
We’ll walk in the light, beautiful light,
Come where the dew-drops of mercy are bright;
Shine all around us by day and by night,
Jesus, the Light of the world.

2 Hear the Saviour’s earnest call,
Jesus, the Light of the world;
Send the gospel truth to all,
Jesus, the Light of the world. [Refrain]

3 Why not seek Him then today,
Jesus, the Light of the world;
Go with truth the narrow way,
Jesus, the Light of the world. [Refrain]

4 Come, confess Him as your king,
Jesus, the Light of the world;
Then the bells of heav’n will ring,
Jesus, the Light of the world. [Refrain]
