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 is the light, the way,
We are walking in the light,
We are walking in the light;
Shining brighter day by day,
We are walking in the beautiful light of God.

Refrain:
We are walking in the light,
We are walking in the light,
We are walking in the light,
We are walking in the beautiful light of God.

2 We, who know our sins forgiv’n,
We are walking in the light,
We are walking in the light;
Find on earth the joy of heav’n,
We are walking in the beautiful light of God. [Refrain]

3 As we journey here below,
We are walking in the light,
We are walking in the light;
Oh, what joy and peace we know,
We are walking in the beautiful light of God. [Refrain]

4 We will sing His pow’r to save,
We are walking in the light,
We are walking in the light;
We will triumph o’er the grave,
We are walking in the beautiful light of God. [Refrain]
