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.
1 Arise and shine thy light is come,
O Zion! now thy Lord appears,
That gracious light dispels the gloom
Of all thy doubts, thy dreads and fears.
2 Though darkness covers all thy land,
And ignorance doth vail thine eyes;
Yet at the mighty Lord's command
That light shall to all nations rise.
3 From sea to sea, from shore to shore
Shall the bless'd Saviour's name be spread:
And such as knew him ne'er before
Shall own him as their king and head.
4 Glad off'rings shall all nations bring,
And worship at his gracious throne;
Adore their Lord and Sovereign King,
And make his grace to sinners known.
5 Remotest nations on the earth
Shall hear and feel and Gospel word:
Those of renown and nobler birth
Shall humbly bow to Christ, their Lord.
6 Poor straying souls shall find their God,
And know their sins to be for giv'n,
And sanctified through Jesus' blood:
They shall be made the heirs of heav'n.
