Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 Walking in the light of God,
As it shines throughout his word,
There’s a bright and shining path the way along;
And a path that would be drear,
Shines with glory, O so clear!
That the heart rejoices in a song.

We are walking in the light,
We are walking in the light;
Walking in the narrow way,
To the realms of endless day,
We are walking in the light of God.

2 Often weary, often sad,
Yet the soul is ever glad,
For the light of God the cheerfulness supplies;
So we walk where’er he leads,
Thro’ the vale or mountain meads,
Where new glories greet our wearies eyes. [Refrain]

3 Till we reach the summit high,
And behold the glorious sky,
With its radiant light that comes from heaven’s dome;
We shall trust in God our King,
And press onward, while we sing
Of the glories of our heav’nly home. [Refrain]
