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.

Representative Text

1 I am on the shining pathway,
Adown life’s short’ning years,
And my heart hath known its sorrows,
Mine eyes have seen their tears;
But I saw those shadows flee,
And the shining light I see,
While I’m trusting in the merit
Of the Man of Galilee.

2 My soul has had its conflicts
With mighty hosts of sin;
With deadly foes without me,
And deadlier foes within;
But I saw those legions flee,
And my soul found victory,
When I trusted in the merit
Of the Man of Galilee.

3 I am coming near the city
My Saviour’s hands have piled,
And I know my Father’s waiting
To welcome home His child;
For unworthy tho’ I be,
He will find a place for me,
For He is the King of glory—
The Man of Galilee.
