Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 Just as the stars are shining,
Making the darkness bright,
So we are shining, shining,
Shedding our golden light.

Shining, shining, shining,
Just like the stars above,
Making the world around us,
Happy with light and love.

2 And as the stars are smiling,
Down on the earth below,
We may reflect the sunlight,
Shining where’er we go. [Refrain]

3 Each in his little corner,
Whether at work or play,
We would be always shining,
Turning the night to day. [Refrain]

4 How could they do without us?
Dark would the world be then;
We are the Savior’s jewels,
Cheering the hearts of men. [Refrain]
