Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 I was wandering on in darkness and sin,
All weary with toiling alone,
But I opened my heart in pray’r unto Him,
When a stream of light came in.

Refrain:
O, a stream of light came in, came in,
O, a stream of light came in,
When Jesus came to me,
My heart was full and free,
A stream of light came in.

2 With a heart that was sore, with my head fallen low,
I came unto Christ with my sins,
And the Lord looked on me, cleans’d my heart, touch’d my brow,
When a stream of light came in. [Refrain]

3 O the peace, O the joy, in the look from His face,
When seeking I came unto Him,
What a shout, what a song when my heart found His grace,
When a stream of light came in. [Refrain]
