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

Representative Text

1 There are gloomy paths along the way,
There are souls that in the darkness stray;
We may lead them into God’s clear day,—
O let us shine for Jesus!

Let us shine clear and bright for Jesus,
Let us work with our might for Jesus;
Let us live always right for Jesus,
Let us shine, work and live for Him.

2 There are hearts that feel their weight of sin,
There are precious ones a smile would win;
There are fields where lab’rers have not been,—
O let us work for Jesus! [Refrain]

3 Where the Savior dwells is love and light,
Ev’ry day is filled with sunshine bright,
In the life divine there is no night,—
O let us look for Jesus. [Refrain]

4 May our lives each day His spirit show,
In His grave and wisdom may we grow,
And His love thro’ us to others show,—
O let us live for Jesus! [Refrain]
