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.

Representative Text

1 Be a little light for Jesus,
Shine on brightly day by day,
Some one wand’ring in the darkness,
May be guided by its ray.
Think not that it does not matter
If your little light grow dim,
Let it brightly shine for Jesus,
It may lead some soul to Him.

Refrain:
Be a little light for Jesus,
Shine on brightly day by day,
Someone wand’ring in the darkness,
May be guided by its ray.

2 Be a little light for Jesus,
Shine on brightly like a star,
O you may not know how many
Catch its radiance from afar.
Some one groping in the shadows,
Some one strayed in sin’s dark night,
May behold it ceaseless shining
And be led to Christ the Light. [Refrain]
