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.

Representative Text

1 We will shine for Christ our Saviour,
Though our years are very few,
We some little loving service,
Daily for our Lord may do.

We will shine for Christ our Saviour,
Each within his little sphere,
Shining ever for His glory,
Sending out love’s light and cheer.

2 We will shine for Christ our Saviour,
We will keep our lights aglow,
Teach us how to serve Him better,
As we older, wiser grow. [Refrain]

3 We will shine for Christ our Saviour,
Striving evermore to bring,
By our loving deeds the straying,
To the palace of our King. [Refrain]
