Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? 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 Arise and shine, thy light is come!
The Lord hath made thee free;
The chains of darkness bind no more;
Go forth in liberty!

Refrain:
Arise and shine, thy light is come!
Arise, arise and shine!
With love’s bright adorning
Shine forth as the morning,
Arise, arise and shine!

2 Arise and shine, thy light is come!
Let sin and sorrow hide;
Go forth and show to all the world
That Light and Life abide! [Refrain]

3 Arise and shine, thy light is come!
Thy God thy glory is;
Show forth the wonders of His love,
And let all praise be His! [Refrain]

4 Arise and shine, thy light is come,
And night shall be no more;
Shine till the glory of the Lord
Is known from shore to shore! [Refrain]
