Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 The darkness is pass’d and the true light is shining,
The light that first shone over Bethlehem’s plain;
And the song of the angels new voices are chiming,
Of glory to God and salvation to me.

Refrain:
The true light is shining,
The true light is shining,
And songs are arising from over the sea;
While God in His mercy and love is inclining,
The true light is shining for you and for me.

2 The darkness is pass’d and the true light is shining,
The shadows are fleeing and morn comes apace;
There’s a glow in the east of a bright silver lining,
The world is awakened to hear of God’s grace. [Refrain]

3 The darkness is pass’d and the true light is shining;
Oh, let us with light by the Spirit be filled;
For if yielded to God ere our day is declining,
The light must shine thro’ us, as Jesus hath will’d. [Refrain]
