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’ll follow Jesus in the way,
Shining more and more;
It leadeth to the perfect day,
Shining more and more.

Shining more and more,
As nears the golden shore;
The path that Jesus loves to bless,
It shineth more and more.

2 With tender love and wondrous grace,
Shining more and more;
With sunshine from the Saviour’s face,
Shining more and more. [Refrain]

3 With faith that rests alone on him,
Shining more and more;
With hopes, no passing cloud can dim,
Shining more and more. [Refrain]

4 With beams of everlasting lights,
Shining more and more;
With gleams of glory, pure and bright,
Shining more and more. [Refrain]
