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.
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 head,
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.Source: Hymnal and Liturgies of the Moravian Church #71
