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 Hymnary.org, 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

Let a shining robe be mine,
Spotless as the snow drift white,
Thou, who for Thy form Divine,
Mak'st a garment of the light.

Darkness from Thy presence flies,
Thou art light: and where Thou art,
Radiance, as from heavenly skies,
Seeks, effulgent, every heart.

Far I wandered from the right,
Dark around, and dark within;
Groping in the gloom of night,
Wounded in the ways of sin.

163
And my rags with mire defiled,
Clothe my naked soul with shame;
For, from Thee, a wayward child,
I have wandered to my blame.

Let Thy presence fill my soul,
Let my heart Thy nearness feel;
Speak the word, and I am whole;
Touch my wounds, and they shall heal.

Then the night that round me lies,
At Thy presence shall depart;
And a glorious light arise
In the darkness of my heart.

Let a shining robe be mine,
Spotless as the snow drift white;
Thou, who, for Thy form Divine,
Mak'st a garment of the light.
