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 Beautiful Light,
Holy and true,
Shining for me,
Shining for you;
Star of the morn,
Brighter than Day.—
“I am the Light,
I am the Way.”

I am the Light,
I am the Way,
He that hath me
Never will stray,
I am the Life,
I am the Door,
Enter and live

2 Beautiful Way,
Holy and free,
Cast up for you,
Cast up for me;
Walk in the Way
Narrow and straight,
You it will lead
To the bright gate. [Refrain]

3 Beautiful Life,
Holy is he,
Living for you,
Living for me;
Dwelling in him
Mortals are blest,
Perfect in love,
Peaceful in rest. [Refrain]
