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 Resplendent sun! your brilliant beams
Should make my heart confess
A deeper awe of Him who is
Our Sun of Righteousness.
O little star, that sweetly shines
In heaven like a gem,
Your light recalls salvation’s star,
The Star of Bethlehem!

2 O falling rain, your welcome drops
Make drooping nature live;
Our Savior to all thirsting souls
Water of life will give.
O flower, opening to the sun,
Teach my heart ne’er to close
To Him whose pure, sweet life was like
The lily and the rose.

3 O guileless lamb, bring back to me
That life of toil and pain!
The sufferings of the heav’nly Lamb,
Who for my sins was slain.
Dear Savior, may we love Thee so,
That all good things may be
But mirrors, where our seeking eyes
Find image of Thee!
