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.
1 If you cannot be a great light shining
In some lofty place that all may see,
Do not waste your moments in repining,
Like a little candle you may be.
Always, always shining,
Clearly, brightly shining;
Would you help to fill the dark world with light?
Make your corner bright.
2 Like the nightingale you may not warble,
Thrilling every ear the songs you sing,
But some lonely heart you may make happy,
If you sing to please your Savior King. [Refrain]
3 Many little raindrops make a shower,
Each one patter softly in its place,
Falling on the thirsty fields and flowers,
Scatter thus kind words and deeds of grace. [Refrain]Source: United Praise: for use in Sunday Schools, Young People's Societies and other Church Services #100
