We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 They that be wise shall shine as the skies
In the firmament’s radiant light,
And they that turn many to righteousness,
Shall shine as the stars, forever bright.

Refrain:
The wise shall shine,
As the firmament’s glittering light,
And they that turn many to righteousness,
As the stars, forever bright.

2 They that be wise shall live for the skies,
Tho’ rugged the pathway of right;
The pure and true angels of faith, hope and love,
To shine as the stars, forever bright. [Refrain]

3 They that be wise shall point to the skies
All the wayward in sin’s deepest blight,
That they, too, believing, do God’s righteousness,
May shine as the stars, forever bright. [Refrain]
