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.

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.

Representative Text

1. Dia vorto restas,
Nia gvido estas;
Lumas ĝi la vojon,
Donas puran ĝojon.

2. Meze de ĉagreno
Sonas ĝia beno;
Vorto de konsolo,
Sava Diparolo.

3. Trans ventega maro,
Nigra nubegaro,
Ĝia lum' direktas,
Voje nin protektas.

4. Fonto de plezuro,
Ĝojo sen mezuro,
Mino da trezoro
Por la simpla koro.

5. Dum la vivo restos,
Ĝi subtenos estos;
Plej konsola vorto,
Kiam venos morto.

6. Gvidu la influo
De la sanktinstruo,
Ĝis kun la Sinjoro
Restos ni en gloro.
