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 When the sun of life fades into crimson and gold,
And the mists of eternity o'er me have rolled,
I shall look thro' the shadows that fall with the night,
And catch the bright gleam of the City of Light.

Shadows? Yes, shadows I know will be there!
Shadows? Yes shadows! but not of despair!
For morning will break,
And I shall awake
To dwell with my King, and His glory share.

2 I shall stand on the shore of the Mystery Sea,
Shrinking not at the darkness, though deep it may be;
"For I know in whom I have believed," and fear
No shadow or danger, for He will be near. [Chorus]

3 As the lengthening shaddows are lost in the gloom,
And I walk thro' the midnight with Death, in the tomb,
A new Star will arise o'er the night of the grave,
And Jesus will come in His power to save. [Chorus]
