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. But this project does not
come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold
a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.
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.
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.
1 Fountain of uncreated light!
Thou give of the mental sight!
Thy beams on all are shed;
Thy grace, on all mankind bestow'd,
Still points each seeking soul the road
To happiness and God.
2 Lighten'd by thine interior ray,
Thee ev'ry child of Adam may
His unknown God explore,
And, following close thy secret grace,
Immerge into the glorious place
Where darkness is no more.
3 That universal light thou art,
And turn'd to thee the darkest heart
A glimmering spark may find;
Let man reject it or embrace,
Thou offerest thy saving grace
To us and all mankind.
4 Light of our soul, we follow tee
In humble faith on earth to see
Thy perfect day of love,
And then with all thy saints in light
To gain the beatifick sight
Which makes their heaven above.Source: A Collection of Psalms and Hymns for Publick Worship #CLVI
