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

Jewels Bright

Representative Text

1 If we love the Saviour,
Follow Him alway,
We shall be His jewels—
Shine in bright array.
Let us seek to please Him
In all things we do,
Let us serve our Saviour
Faithfully and true.

Jewels, precious jewels
May we ever be,
Shining in the Saviour’s crown
Thro’ eternity.

2 We can help the weary,
We can cheer the sad;
Just a cup of water
Makes the thirsty glad.
There are lonely hovels
On the country side,
We can take His message—
Tell of Christ who died. [Refrain]

3 In the crowded city,
In each dreary place;
We can speak of Jesus,
Of His wondrous grace;
Of His love and mercy
Let us ever sing
We will be true children
Of our gracious King. [Refrain]
