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.

Representative Text

1 Lord, show me thy glory, the light of thy face,
The wonders of goodness and love;
In Jesus, my Lord, there’s abundance of grace,
And fullness of joy from above.

Lord, show me thy glory, the wonderful glory;
Drive sin and its darkness away;
Lord, show me thy glory, thy wonderful glory,
In Jesus, my Savior, today.

2 Lord, show me thy glory; I’m hid in the cleft,
The Rock that was riven for me;
Without thee, of comfort and hope I’m bereft,
All blessing is centered in thee. [Refrain]

3 Lord, show me thy glory; tho’ here but in part,
The love in Emmanuel, I see,
Thy peace without measure is filling my heart,
Day breaks, and the shadows will flee. [Refrain]

4 Lord, show me thy glory, and help me, I pray,
Reflecting thy image Divine;
Transformed more and more by thy likeness each day,
Till thro’ me thy radiance shall shine. [Refrain]
