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

648. There Is Sunlight on the Hilltop

1 There is sunlight on the hilltop,
There is sunlight on the sea;
And the golden beams are sleeping
On the soft and verdant lea;
But a richer light is filling
All the chambers of my heart;
For Thou dwellest there, my Savior
And ’tis sunlight where Thou art.

Refrain:
Oh, the sunlight! beautiful sunlight!
Oh, the sunlight in the heart!
Jesus’ smile can banish sadness;
It is sunlight in the heart.

2 In the dust I leave my sadness,
As the garb of other days,
For Thou robest me with gladness,
And Thou fillest me with praise;
And to that bright home of glory
Which Thy love hath won for me,
In my heart and mind ascending,
My glad spirit follows Thee. [Refrain]

3 Loving Savior, Thou hast bought me,
And my life, my all, is Thine;
Let the lamp Thy love hath lighted
To Thy praise and glory shine;
And to that bright home of glory
Which Thy love hath won for me,
In my heart and mind ascending,
My glad spirit follows Thee. [Refrain]
