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. If never the gaze of sun and moon,
On the blessèd home above,
From whence are its rays of wondrous noon?
Oh! The Lamb is the light thereof.

They shall walk in white,
There shall be no night
In the fadeless home above;
And the shout shall ring
As the ransomed sing,
Oh! The Lamb is the light thereof.

2. And thus saith the page of Holy Writ
Of the land of song and love,
The glory of God did lighten it,
And the Lamb is the light thereof. [Refrain]

3. Then follow Him, till the eye grows dim,
And the soul, as ark-freed dove,
Shall speed away to realms of day,
Where The Lamb is the light thereof. [Refrain]
