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.

Let Your Light Shine

Representative Text

1 Let your light so shine that the world may see
How to come to Christ who will set them free;
Let its rays gleam bright when the darkness falls,
Till each sinful soul for the Savior calls.

Refrain:
Let your light shine, let your light shine,
Let your light so shine before men;
That they your works beholding, that they your works beholding,
May glorify the Father’s name in heav’n.

2 Let your light so shine everywhere you go,
Till the tribes of earth Jesus Christ may know;
Let its rays transpose into perfect day,
When the clouds of gloom shall be swept away. [Refrain]

3 Let your light so shine that its beams may reach
Every darkened soul, thus the gospel preach;
Let it brighter shine till that endless day,
Bursts upon our sight ne’er to pass away. [Refrain]

4 Let your light so shine every day and hour,
That the truth be clothed with divinest pow’r;
Let it brightly shine and promote God’s cause,
To exalt His name and His holy law. [Refrain]
