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

Representative Text

1 Shine in my heart, Lord Jesus,
And lead me into light;
Dispel each cloud and shadow
And chase away my night;
Shine on my soul, O Jesus,
And warm me with Thy love,
Oh, help me when I need Thee,
Thy faithfulness to prove.

2 Shine in my heart, Lord Jesus;
I need Thee every day
To help me keep Thy statutes
To walk the narrow way;
Oh, leave me not, my Savior,
Or else I faint, I fall;
Come in Thy might and help me
When Thou dost hear me call.

3 Increase my faith, Lord Jesus,
May Thy dear precious blood
Of sin completely cleanse me
And make me pure and good;
Increase my love, O Jesus,
And bind my heart to Thee,
So when my days are numbered
Thy smile of love I’ll see.

And when the king of terrors
Shall stand across my way,
Oh, help me to go forward,
Regardless of his sway:
Thy rod and staff to help me,
My safety will ensure,
And with the Father’s favor,
I’ll rest in love secure.
