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.

1 Down in the valley of sorrow and sin,
Some one is lost in the darkness of night;
Some one that you to your Savior may win;
Some one is watching, is watching your light!

Refrain:
Watching your light! watching your light!
Some one is watching, is watching your light!
O does it shine with a radiance bright,
Some one is watching, is watching your light!

2 Long is the journey and some one is weak;
Some one if tempted may fall in the flight;
Some one will win if His promise you speak:
Some one is watching, is watching your light! [Refrain]

3 Touched by the story of Christ and His love,
Some one will turn from the wrong to the right,
Looking for guidance to heaven above;
Some one is watching, is watching your light! [Refrain]

4 On that glad morning, when all shall arise,
Saved by the infinite pow’r of His might,
Some one will greet you at home in the skies;
Some one is watching, is watching your light! [Refrain]
