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.

916. Sometimes When the Shadows Are Gathering

1 Some times when the shadows are gathering low,
The love of the Savior shines thro'
Some times when the way seems too hard as we go,
The love of the Savior shines thro'

Chorus:
The love of the Savior shines thro'
The love of the Savior shines thro',
It's shining for me it is shining for you,
The love of the Savior shines thro'.

2 Some times when our efforts for Him seem in vain,
The love of the Savior shines thro'
Some times when it seems that the crown we can't win,
The love of the Savior shines thro' [Chorus]

3 Some times when it seems that our life is but tears,
The love of the Savior shines thro'
Some times when we're losing a loved one so dear,
The love of the Savior shines thro' [Chorus]
