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 O pilgrim thro’ a desert drear,
How dark and lone our way,
Till, gently falling on the ear,
We hear a sweet voice say:
I am the light,
I am the light;
He that followeth me shall not walk in darkness,
shall not walk in darkness,
but shall have the light of life,
shall have the light of life.
2 Tho’ we must walk by faith alone,
And cannot walk by sight,
Yet, trusting as the days go on,
Our path is ever bright. [Refrain]
3 Tho’ clouds may rise, and storms may chill,
Yet, beaming far above,
The eye of faith discerneth still
The light of perfect love. [Refrain]
4 The sun will shine, the storm pass o’er,
The darkness flee away;
The light is shining more and more,
Unto the perfect day. [Refrain]
5 O wondrous light, thy cheering ray
Dispels our deepest gloom,
Transforms the darkness into day,
And lights the silent tomb. [Refrain]Source: Sacred Songs No. 1: compiled and arranged for use in gospel meetings, Sunday schools, prayer meetings and other religious services #32
