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.

The soul in the exercise of Faith

You saints of light that shine so bright

Published in 4 hymnals

Representative Text

1 You saints of light that shine so bright,
Above the lofty skies,
Come sing aloud since you're endowed
With holy exercise.

2 My soul doth long to sing a song
Unto my lord above;
And there unite in sweet delight,
With all the saints in love;

3 And spend away eternal day,
In lofty songs of praise,
And thus engage throughout the age
Of everlasting days.

4 When I get grace and strength of faith,
To strike these heavenly notes,
I'll praise him too as angels do,
With their sweet warbling throats.
