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 It is not dark where Jesus is,
He makes my pathway bright;
The darkest night is turned to day
When he becomes my light.
That blessed Light, that blessed Light
That streams upon my way;
I need no other sun nor star
To guide by night or day.
2 When I am filled with sore distress
And life is sad and drear,
His gracious smile dispels my gloom,
And fills my soul with cheer. [Refrain]
3 Oft have I seen the clouds depart
When his benignant ray
Has pierced the sable mystery
And bade it flee away. [Refrain]
4 I will not fear death’s gloomy vale,
Nor heed the pall and bier;
The valley shall be filled with joy,
If Jesus be but near. [Refrain]
5 The Saviour is the Light of Life
When here by tempests driv’n;
My Sun, that scatters ev’ry cloud;
My Star, that guides to heavn’n. [Refrain]Source: Songs for All #49
