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

1 Brightly the sunlight is gleaming today,
Gleaming today, gleaming today,
Over the meadows where little lambs play,
Over the river and rills.
Over the treetops so shining and green;
Over the lake’s silvery sheen,
Seeming in ev’ry bright sunbeam to say,
Christ is the Lord of the day.

Sweet breath of flow’rs
Upon our senses fall,
These golden hours,
We praise the Lord of all,
Now turn our hearts
To thee, our Lord above;
These lovely flow’rs
Proclaim thy redeeming love.

2 Brightly God’s sunlight is shining today,
Shining today, shining today,
During life’s trials it lightens our way,
Filling our young hearts with love.
Sweetly, our Saviour, so gentle and mild
Watches and cares for his child,
Noting the sparrows wherever they fall,
Christ is the Lord of them all. [Refrain]

3 Firmly God’s promise is standing today,
Standing today, standing today,
He will protect us if to him we pray,
Seeking his mercy and love.
Fearing no evil with him by our side,
Only in him we abide,
Guarding his children the great and the small,
Christ is the Father of all. [Refrain]
