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

We Are Singing, for the Lord is Our Light

Full Text

Refrain
We are singing, for the Lord is our light, we are singing, for the Lord is our light.
We are singing, for the Lord is our light, we are singing, for the Lord is our light.
We are singing, Oh, we are singing, for the Lord is our light,
We are singing, Oh, we are singing, for the Lord is our light.

1 The Lord is the strength of our lives; Of whom shall we be afraid?
Though foes may be near to destroy; The Lord will be our light.
Refrain

2 One thing have we asked of the Lord, Yes, this is the thing we seek:
To dwell in the house of the Lord, To live with God forever.
Refrain

3 When burdens are heavy to bear, Our shelter is God alone.
Our feet are lifted high, Yes high upon a rock.
Refrain

4 We walk in the strength of the Lord; God’s love is ever sure.
We shout that the world may hear; We sing a joyful song.
Refrain
