Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Full Text

1 When danger and sorrow encompassed my soul,
And dark seemed my path as the night,
I cried to the Lord and He parted the clouds
And let in His glorious light.

Refrain:
The light brightly beamed on my soul,
The light brightly beamed on my soul,
Since Jesus, my Saviour, dispelled the dark clouds,
The light brightly beams on my soul.

2 Now bright as the noontide the pathway appears,
The clouds have all vanished away;
I walk in the light of my Lord’s loving smile,
And dwell in His beautiful day. [Refrain]

3 To Jesus, who rescued my soul from despair,
My life’s sweetest service I bring;
And now in my heart with rejoicing and song,
I crown Him my Saviour and King. [Refrain]

4 The Saviour is calling—why longer delay?
He’s waiting your soul to receive,
He’ll pardon and cleanse you, and make you His child,
If only on Him you believe. [Refrain]
