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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 As the days are passing by,
On swift wings the minutes fly;
Saviour dear, we pray to Thee,
Sunshine minutes let them be.

Help us, help us Lord, we pray
Not to waste our time away;
Consecrated all to Thee,
Sunshine minutes let them be.

2 Coming to us fresh and new,
To each one may we be true;
Fill’d with deeds of love for Thee,
Sunshine minutes let them be. [Refrain]

3 Help us keep this tho’t in mind;
Minutes lost we shall not find;
Consecrated each to Thee,
Sunshine minutes let them be. [Refrain]

4 If we spend the minutes right,
Then our days will all be bright,
That the world Thy love may see,
Sunshine minutes let them be. [Refrain]
