Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

1 Bright glory beams are shining clear
Around me day by day;
Yet, if alone, my heart might fear
That I might lose the way;
But Jesus sheds a light divine,
My soul with hope to cheer,
Till I shall claim the crown as mine,
Beyond the reach of fear.

2 Portentous clouds of grief and doubt
May overcast my sky;
The Saviour’s voice is ringing out:
Fear not, fear not, ‘tis I;
I’ll hold thee in my arms, dear child,
Thy feet shall never stray;
Tho' storms may gather dark and wild,
I’m with thee all the way.

3 I’ll bear thee o’er the deep, cold tide,
To yonder blissful shore,
Where trusting souls in joy abide,
And fears prevail no more;
There streams of bliss forever flow,
And light forever shines;
With love and grace each heart aglow,
The glory ne’er declines.

Kenyon, Archibald, was born at Athol, Warren County, New York, July 31, 1813, and entered the Baptist ministry in 1838. He has written a large number of hymns, several of which are found in the Royal Diadem, Pure Gold, Our Glad Hosanna, Glad Refrain, and other American Sunday Schools and Mission hymn-books. "Jesus, hear me when I pray" (Divine Help desired) in Our Glad Hosanna, 1882, is a good example of his work. --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, Appendix, Part II (1907)… Go to person page >
