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

865. On the Sunny Side of Life

1 There’s a sunny side where no ills betide,
On the road that we must go;
There are pleasant vales, verdant hills and dales,
Where sweet flowers ever grow.

Refrain:
Oh, the happy, sunny, verdant dales,
Where the sweetest gladness e’er prevails,
Where the sunshine lingers on the hills
Of the sunny side of life.

2 There are shady dells where no gladness dwells,
And the clouds obstruct the view;
But a brighter way, like the light of day,
Is awaiting now for you. [Refrain]

3 Let us sing a song as we go along,
Let us banish care and strife,
That the world may know as we onward go,
There’s a sunny side of life. [Refrain]
