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’s a light that is shining in darkness,
While we wait for the dawning of day;
And it cheers us along on our journey,
Till the shadows shall vanish away!

So we’ll wait and watch for the dawning,
The day of eternity blest;
Then take the wings of the morning,
And fly away to our rest.

2 From the sure word the prophets have spoken,
There is light flashing forth through the gloom;
For the Scripture can never be broken,
And the King in His glory will come. [Refrain]

3 Now we sing ‘mid the darkness and shadows,
And we pray and we watch for the dawn;
Till the Daystar, in glory arising,
Shall betoken the coming of morn. [Refrain]

4 We are not of the night nor of darkness;
Let us walk, then, as children of day;
Our weeping shall be for a moment,
And our joy shall ne’er vanish away! [Refrain]
