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.

Representative Text

1. O the kindly light is shining on my pathway,
Thro’ the gath’ring gloom and darkness of the night;
And I fear no evil, for the way before me
In a flood of glory now appears to sight.

Blessèd kindly light, glorious cheering ray,
’Tis the light of Heaven shining glad and free;
Blessèd kindly light, leading all the way,
O the kindly light is leading even me.

2. I was lost amid the heavy mist of sorrow,
Grieving for the loved ones who had passed from sight,
When the light before me led my fal’tring footsteps
To the path they journeyed to the mansions bright. [Refrain]

3. When the journey of this life is sometime over,
I know I’ll be glad I followed all the way,
For the light that guided safely thro’ the darkness
Then will lead me onward to the perfect day. [Refrain]
