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

God gave me a little light

God gave me a little light

Tune: [God gave me a little light]
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1. God gave me a little light
To carry as I go;
Bade me keep it clean and bright,
Shining high and low;
Bear it steadfast without fear,
Shed its radiance far and near;
Make the path before me clear
With its friendly glow.

2. God gave me a little song
To sing upon my way;
Rough may be the road and long,
Dark may be the day;
Yet a little bird can wing,
Yet a little flower can spring,
Yet a little child can sing,
And make the whole world gay.

3. God gave me a little heart
To love whate'er he made;
Gave me strength to bear my part
Glad and unafraid.
Thro' thy world so fair, so bright,
Father, guide my steps aright!
Thou my song and thou my light
So my trust is stayed.
