We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 Beautiful faces are those that wear—
It matters little if dark or fair,
Whole-souled honesty printed there;
Beautiful eyes are those that show,
Like crystal panel where hearth-fires glow,
Beautiful thoughts that burn below.

Beautiful lives are those that bless,
Sweet silent rivers of happiness,
Silent rivers of happiness.

2 Beautiful lips are those whose words
Leap from the heart like the songs of birds,
Yet whose utterance prudence girds;
Beautiful hands are those that do
Work that’s earnest, brave and true,
Moment by moment the long day thro’. [Refrain]

3 Beautiful feet are those that go,
On kind deeds bent alway to and fro,
Down lowliest ways, if God wills it so.
Beautiful shoulders are those that bear
Ceaseless burdens of homely care,
With patient grace and daily pray’r. [Refrain]
