Dear Friend of Hymnary,

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, 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.

1 There’s a bright and Golden Light,
That is shining on our way,
And it cometh from above.
‘Tis the precious light of truth,
That will lead to endless day;
‘Tis the light of a Saviour’s love.

Golden light, shine on,
Shine on us from above,
And brighten up the way,
That will lead to endless day,
With the light of a Saviour’s love.

2 ‘Tis the light that led me up,
From the darkness of my sin,
To the glorious light of day;
‘Tis the light that fills my soul,
And makes peace and joy within;
From this light I shall never stray. [Refrain]

3 ‘Tis the light that guides me on,
O’er the rugged paths of life,
Up the weary hills of time;
Thro’ the troubles and the care,
Thro’ the conflict and the strife,
This light shall be evermore. [Refrain]

4 If we trust the Saviour’s voice,
And obey His blest command,
He will guide us home above;
There the Golden Light will shine,
Ever in that happy land;
It will be His own precious love. [Refrain]
