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, 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.

1. Dio, laŭ kies Vort'
Flugis de via fort'
Kie la benradi'
De la Evangeli'
Mankas al fil' de Vi,
      Estu la lum'.

2. Portis Vi, glora Fil',
Sur la savadflugil'
      Sanon kun lum':
Al la spiritblindul'
Kaj al la pekemul'
Ĉesu de pek' la brul':
      Estu la lum'.

3. Dio de l'Am' kaj Ver',
Iĝu en ĉiu sfer'
      Vivoplenum' ;
Movu kun graclumil'
Tra la pekujoj mil,
Ĉie per ĝia bril'
      Estu la lum'.

4. Glora kaj sankta Tri',
Saĝa, povega Di',
      Ĉiel la Sum',
Donu ke, kiel mar'
Ondas sen ia bar',
Onde tra l'naciar'
      Estu la lum'. Amen.
