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.

Representative Text

1 There’s a precious fountain, flowing deep and wide,
There is perfect cleansing in its crimson tide;
Underneath its current we would e’er abide.
Walking in the light of God.

Refrain:
If we walk in the light, as he is in the light,
We have fellowship one with another,
And the blood of Jesus Christ his Son
Cleanseth us from all sin.

2 We are living safe beneath the fountain’s flow,
Free from sinful dross, with raiment white as snow;
We’ve a hand to guide us, as we onward go,
Walking in the light of God. [Refrain]

3 From the bonds of sin the Lord hath brought release,
Bade our cry of mourning evermore to cease;
We are filled each moment with his blessed peace,
Walking in the light of God. [Refrain]

4 From our hearts the praise of Jesus Christ we sing,
By our service we will crown him Lord and King,
To his feet an offering of love we bring,
Walking in the light of God. [Refrain]
