We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 Let your light shine out, with a constant low,
In your pathway as you go,
With a cheery smile, and a kindly face
Brighten many a darkened place.

Refrain:
Let your light shine out,
Let your light shine out,
Fill with gladness life’s short day;
Let your light shine out,
Let your light shine out,
Scatter sunshine all along the way.

2 There are lonely ones, no true friend is near,
On some hearts a shadow drear
There are toilers needing a helping hand;
Be ye ready at my command. [Refrain]

3 In the name of Him who on human grief
Looked with pain and grave relief—
Unto those oppressed and to those in doubt
Let the beautiful light shine out. [Refrain]
