We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

1 Will there be light at eventide,
When my bark unmoors for sea?
Will faith's bright ray illume the way,
O will there be light for me?

Chorus:
Will there be light? O will there be light?
O will there be light for me, for me?
Will there be light at eventide,
When my bark unmoors for sea?

2 When I draw near the other shore,
Will there be a shining band
Of those I knew and loved on earth,
Awaiting me on the strand?

Chorus:
Will there be light? O will there be light?
O will there be light for me, for me?
Will there be light of faces bright,
On the banks of the crystal sea?

3 On yonder shore are the golden gates,
That lead to the city fair,
Where Jesus stands, with outstretch'd hands,
To bid me welcome there.

Chorus:
There will be light, O there will be light,
O there will be light for me, for me,
He is the Light of glory bright,
That shone on Calvary.
