Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.
Harry Plantinga

Father, let thy light divine

Father, let thy light divine

Published in 4 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Father, let thy light divine
Brightly o'er my pathway shine;
Bid the shadows disappear,
Banish every sinful fear;
Guide me in the narrow way
To the realms of endless day.

2 Canst thou own me as thy child,
One so oft by sin defiled?
Canst thou fit me, by thy grace,
To behold thy dwelling-place?
Trembling, Lord, I would believe;
Let me not myself deceive.

3 But if I am all thy own,
Let me live for thee alone;
Let the honor of thy name
All my inmost soul inflame;
Let thy Holy Spirit move,
Till my heart is filled with love.
