Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Are you shining for Jesus, my brother,
Shining so clear and so bright,
That the souls that are perishing around you
May be guided to Him by your light?

Shining for Jesus,
Are you shining today?
Shining for Jesus,
Shining all the way.
Shining for Jesus,
In this world of care;
Shining for Jesus,
Shining everywhere.

2 Are you shining for Jesus, my brother,
Shining in deed and in word?
Is your life by its purity showing
The likeness of Jesus your Lord? [Refrain]

3 Are you shining for Jesus, my brother,
Shining for truth and for right,
Where bold unbelief and its minions
Are posing as angels of light? [Refrain]

4 Oh! shine out for Jesus, my brother,
Shine where He needs you the most;
And shine where the darkness hangs deepest
O’er the path of the straying and lost. [Refrain]

5 Shine only and always for Jesus,
Then, when your toiling is o’er,
In mansions of glory eternal
You shall shine as the stars evermore. [Refrain]
