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

1 Light of the world, come nigh and bless
Thy children here below,
Who in Thy house Thy Name confess,
On us Thy grace bestow.

2 Light of the world, in manger low
Didst deign to lay Thy heard,
That we in darkest night of sin
Might to Thy light be led.

3 Light of the world, into our hearts
Let Thy full glory shine.
That we may follow now Thy star
Until we reach Thy shrine.

4 Light of the world, we worship Thee;
Our gifts to Thee we bring;
Accept our sinful hearts, O Lord,
While praise to Thee we sing.

5 Light of the world, when Thou shalt come
Our Judge and Lord to be,
May we through Thy dear sacrifice
Forever dwell in Thee.
