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

Representative Text

1 Jesus bids us shine with a bright, bright light!
Pure little gems in the Savior’s sight;
Shining for the Master with all our might,
Shine, shine, shine.

Bright little jewels we will be;
Shining with a light that all can see;
hear the Master’s voice saying:
“Sing for me!”
Shine, shine, shine.

2 Jesus bids us follow, where He may lead;
All that He tells us we’ll try to heed;
Scattering about us the gospel seed,
Shine, shine, shine. [Refrain]

3 Jesus bids us love Him with all our heart;
Oh, from His love may we never part;
But, while little children, for heav’n we’ll start;
Shine, shine, shine. [Refrain]
