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 Walk in the light the Lord has given
To guide thy steps aright;
His Holy Spirit, sent from heav'n,
Can cheer the darkest night.

Walk in the light,
Walk in the light
Walk in the light,
Walk in the light, the light of God.

2 Walk in the light of gospel truth
That shines from God's own Word,
A light to guide in early youth
The faithful of the Lord. [Chorus]

3 Walk in the light; tho' shadows dark
Should fall across thy way,
Darkness will flee before the light
Of God's eternal day. [Chorus]

4 Walk in the light, and thou shall know
The love of God to thee;
The fellowship, so sweet below,
In heav'n will sweeter be. [Chorus]
