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 Carry the sunshine wherever you go,
Into the byways dreary;
Banish the shadows of sorrow and woe,
Scatter the sunbeams cheery.

Carry the sunshine, the heavenly sunshine,
Brighten the pathways of sorrow and woe;
Jesus is flooding your heart with the sunlight,
Share it with others as you go.

2 Carry the sunshine wherever you go,
Corners where gloom is hiding;
Jesus is ready His light to bestow,
Into the brightness guiding. [Refrain]

3 Carry the sunshine wherever you go,
Into the homes of sadness;
Many are longing its comfort to know,
Hoping for light and gladness. [Refrain]

4 Carry the sunshine wherever you go,
Many in grief are pining;
Over their pathway a radiance throw,
Light form the Savior shining. [Refrain]
