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 rosy beams descending
Bring a cheerful light to all;
So, our loving words of kindness
Scatter smiles where’er they fall.

They are treasures, golden treasures,
Making brighter all our pleasures;
Thy are seed whose fruit will grow;
Let them fall where’er they go.

2 Like the early dew of morning;
Like the balmy, summer rain;
Loving words refresh the spirit,
Fill the heart with joy again. [Chorus]

3 Loving words are strains of music,
Dearly prized and treasured long;
Like the echoed tones that linger,
When the bird has ceased its song. [Chorus]
