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.

46. Scatter Sunshine

1 In a world where sorrow
Ever will be known,
Where are found the needy,
And the sad and lone;
How much joy and comfort
You can all bestow,
If you scatter sunshine
Ev'rywhere you go.

Chorus:
Scatter sunshine all along the way,
Cheer and bless and brighten
Ev'ry paasing day;
Scatter sunshine all along the way,
Cheer and bless and brighten
Ev'ry passing day.

2 Slightest actions often
Meet the sorest needs,
For the world wants daily
Little kindly deeds;
Oh, what care and sorrow
You may help remove,
With your songs and courage,
Sympathy and love. [Chorus]

3 When the days are gloomy
Sing some happy song,
Meet the world's repining
With a courage strong;
Go with faith undaunted,
Thro' the ills of life;
Scatter smiles and sunshine
O'er its toil and strife. [Chorus]
