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

The Sunday School Lighthouse

Representative Text

1 The Sunday School Lighthouse, shines out on life’s wave,
It beams for all nations, their children to save;
Thro’ Calvary’s cross and thro’ Bethlehem’s cave
The light shines from glory with power to save.

Sunday School Lighthouse,
Sunday School Lighthouse,
Send out thy gleam o’er the wave;
Sunday School Lighthouse,
Sunday School Lighthouse,
Oh, help us the children to save.

2 The channels are narrow, sin’s breakers are there,
Life’s ocean is strewed with the wrecks of despair;
Then build up, my brother, no time for delay,
The Sunday School Lighthouse, and save them today. [Refrain]

3 The workers are needed, the teachers are few,
The Master, my brother, depends upon you;
Don’t wait for some wasted life wrecked on the shoals,
The Sunday School Lighthouse must save lives and souls. [Refrain]

4 Where Unbelief’s waves roll and storms are most fierce,
The Sunday School Lighthouse that dark gloom must pierce;
‘Tis the gleam of that Star which at Bethlehem shone,
The Sunday School Lighthouse will light the way home. [Refrain]
