We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Representative Text

1. Star of the morning, beautiful, bright,
Shining with lustre by day and by night;
Lighting my pathway, oh, what delight!
Guiding my footsteps always aright.

Chorus:
Shine on! shine on! Jesus my star,
Guiding me safely thro' this world of strife;
Shine on, shine on! Filled with delight
I hail thy brightness, Star of my life.

2. Light in the darkness, beautiful star,
Flashing thy rays where the deep shadows are,
Comfort in sorrow and hope in despair,
Balm to my soul, oh gem, thou art rare. [Chorus]

3. Star of salvation, brilliantly shine,
Ever around me my life to enshrine;
Lead, and I'll follow and ever be thine,
Jesus my safety, now thou art mine. [Chorus]
