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. In every cloud of pain and loss
There is a silver lining;
Beyond the shadow of the cross
The Morning Star is shining.

Upon my way from day to day,
With hope my path adorning,
I see afar the Morning Star,
The matchless Star of Morning.

2. We need the trials we must bear
Like gold that needs refining;
But, oh, there is no sorrow where
The Morning Star is shining! [Refrain]

3. Temptations greet us day by day,
To sin our hearts inclining;
But still and bright upon our way
The Morning Star is shining. [Refrain]

4. In yonder city, glad and free,
I’ll cease my sad repining;
How sweet to hope it is for me
The Morning Star is shining! [Refrain]
