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.
1 There are lands far away o'er the sea,
Where in darkness lost souls seek the light,
And the call is to you and to me,
Who are walking the "path shining bright."
Send the light o'er the sea,
In the dark heathen lands let it shine;
Till the whole world should walk,
In the light of the gospel divine.
2 In the darkness of error they grope,
And the Saviour in whom we abide
Cannot cheer with the bright ray of hope,
Till we teach them to walk by his side. [Chorus]
3 Bearing light is a part we may do,
Holding high that it may reach afar,
And the soft rays of truth may anew
Shine on earth from the bright morning star. [Chorus]
4 Those who lead souls to light all divine,
Those who tell of God's wonderful love,
As the bright stars forever shall shine
In that beautiful land far above. [Chorus]Source: Crowning Praises: for Sunday-schools, revivals, conventions and all religious work and worship #127
