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 light is here, the blessed light,
The shadows lift and take their flight;
And thus, to guide our steps aright,
We hear the Saviour saying:

Refrain:
“He that followeth me,
He that followeth me,
Shall not walk in darkness,
Shall not walk in darkness,
But shall have the light of life,
The light of life.”

2 The light is pure, the light is free,
It shines for all, that all may see;
And oh, ‘tis sweet beyond degree,
The voice that still is saying: [Refrain]

3 The light abides in him alone,
As by his word so sweetly shown;
And thus in faith from yonder throne,
We hear the Saviour saying: [Refrain]

4 The light is o’er the upward way,
It shineth on to perfect day;
And we are safe when we obey
The voice that still is saying: [Refrain]
