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. 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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1. Give light, O Lord, that we may learn
The way that leads to Thee,
That where our hearts true joy discern,
Our life may be.

2. Give light, O Lord, that we may know
Thy one unchanging truth,
And follow, all our days below,
Our guide in youth.

3. Give light, O Lord, that we may see
Where wisdom bids beware,
And turn our doubting minds to Thee,
In faithful prayer.

4. Give light, O Lord, that we may look
Beneath, around, above,
And learn from nature’s living book
Thy power and love.

5. Give light, O Lord, that we may read
All signs that Thou art near,
And, while we live, in word and deed
Thy name revere.

6. Give light, O Lord, that we may trace
In trial, pain, and loss
In poorest lot, and lowest place,
A Savior’s cross.

7. Give light, O Lord, that we may see
A home beyond the sky,
Where all who live in Christ with Thee
Shall never die.
