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 We are by the Apostle taught,
And in his doctrine see,
How carefull every christian ought
In all their lives to be.

2 The Gospel brings the truth to sight,
And spreads a bright display!
And ignorance like, as the night,
Thereby is drove away.

3 This blessed light to us is shown,
O may it shine within,
To make our state by nature known,
And feel the weight of sin.

4 Yet sure Salvation thro' the blood
Of Jesus we obtain!
And thus restor'd unto our God,
And made his own again.

5 Then, O ye christians pray be wise;
Exert your inmost pow'r--
Strive from the sleep of sin to rise,
Awake and sleep no more.

6 The night is past and fully spent,
Let works of darkness cease:
The blessed light that Jesus sent
Creates establish'd peace.
