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 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 >
