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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Would you shine for Jesus?
Let His love impart
Ardor to your actions,
Comfort to your heart;
With your soul illumined
By the Spirit’s glow,
You will be a beacon
In this world of woe.

Shining for Jesus,
Bringing light divine
To the sad and erring,
Thus for Jesus shine;
Shining for Jesus,
Bringing light divine
To the sad and erring,
Thus for Jesus shine.

2 Would you shine for Jesus
’Mid the careless throng?
Imitate His graces
AS you pass along;
Make no weak surrender
To the coarse and vile;
Keep your tongue from evil,
And your lips from guile. [Refrain]

3 Would you shine for Jesus
As a mirror true?
Image forth His goodness
As revealed in you.
If you thus reflect Him
Till this life is o’er,
You will in His kingdom
Shine forevermore. [Refrain]
