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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1. Yet shall ye be as a dove’s shining wings,
Covered with silver and gold;
Gracious assurance the Word ever brings,
Promise of beauty untold.

Refrain
Shine on us, Savior, oh, shed forth Thy love;
Make us as white as the wings of a dove;
Shine on us, Savior, oh, shed forth Thy love;
Make us as white as the wings of a dove.

2. What tho’ our tent-homes are covered with dust,
While thro’ life’s desert we move;
Time cometh when they shall flutter, we trust,
White as the wings of a dove. [Refrain]

3. What tho’ our garments like leprosy cling,
Robes of self-righteousness wove;
Praises to Jesus! for yet we may sing,
Clad as the wings of a dove. [Refrain]

4. What tho’ we lie ’midst the filth of the earth,
Or as a prodigal rove;
We may come up from the Spirit’s new birth,
Clean as the wings of a dove. [Refrain]

5. What tho’ for years we have wandered in sin,
And ’gainst the Good Spirit strove;
Thro’ Heaven’s portals we yet may go in,
Pure as the wings of a dove. [Refrain]
