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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

1 ‘Tis religion that can give—
In the light, in the light—
Sweetest pleasures while we live
In the light of God.

Refrain:
O let us walk in the light,
Walk in the light,
Let us walk in the light,
In the light of God.

2 ‘Tis religion must supply—
In the light, in the light—
Solid comfort when we die
In the light of God.

3 After death its joys shall be—
In the light, in the light—
Lasting as eternity,
In the light of God.

4 Be the living God my friend,
In the light, in the light­
Then my bliss shall never end,
In the light of God.
