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.
Harry Plantinga

Jesus Is My Sunlight

Representative Text

1 My path is bright, my burden light,
Since Jesus came to stay;
I have no fear while He’s so near
To guide me in the way;
He is my light by day and night,
Along life’s rugged road,
And of His love I’m singing all the day.

Sunlight, sunlight on my path doth shine,
Bringing gladness to this heart of mine;
Sunlight, sunlight shining every day,
Jesus is my sunlight all the way.

2 This light divine doth brightly shine,
Dispelling all the night;
’Twill guide the feet along the way,
Into the paths of right;
’Twill comfort give to all who live
Within its rays so bright,
Until they reach those mansions in the sky. [Refrain]

3 Come out from sin, let’s walk within
This glorious light divine,
And journey to that home above,
Where joy will be sublime;
So glad and free we all shall be
Within His courts to shine,
Among the saints and angels over there. [Refrain]
