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

Jehovah's image brightly shone

Jehovah's image brightly shone

Representative Text

1 Jehovah's image brightly shone
In Eden's lovely pair,
And oft before his gracious throne,
They bowed in praise and prayer.

2 With rectitude, as with a robe,
Their spotless souls were dressed,
With peace abounding, and with joy,
They were divinely blessed.

3 No self-reproach, no slavish dread
Disturbed their peace within;
No frowning storm their path o'erspread,
While undefiled with sin.

4 Thus souls renewed by saving grace--
Whose sins have been forgiven,
Behold the smiles of Jesus' face,
And feel an inward heaven.
