Dear Friend of Hymnary,

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, 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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

1 Christian, let your burning light
Shine on all with luster bright;
Let your words and deeds be pure,
All for Christ you must endure.

Christian, let your light shine,
All along your way;
You may guide a wanderer
To eternal day;
You may save from endless night,
If you let your lamp burn bright.

2 As you journey here below,
Shed a ray where’er you go;
Find in this your pure delight,
Let your light shine clear and bright. [Refrain]

3 That your light may guide you thro’,
Brightly let it shine anew;
Keep up courage—never fail,
Till you’re safe within the veil. [Refrain]
