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.
1 God's word of prophecies are giv'n,
His counsels to reveal;
More firm and sure than earth or heav'n,
They stand and never fail.
2 This word is like the morning star,
Just glaring thro' the skies!
First shews its dawning from afar,
Until the Sun arise.
3 More piercing than the purest light,
It casts aa heav'nly ray;
Dispells the pow'r of darkest night,
And turns it into day.
4 As all the Prophets prophecied,
Inspir'd from God above,
All are fulfill'd and verified
As circumstances prove.
5 As Moses in his day declar'd,
And all the fathers shew'd;
The Lord of lite has now appear'd
To make us sons of God.
6 May I unto this light give heed!
Since none but this alone
Can be, the light of life I need:
To make the Lord my own.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #XLIV
