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 Come join the bright circle, there’s room and to spare,
The Saviour is calling to you,
Why linger ye still in the garden of ease,
There’s work that the smallest can do.

Refrain:
Come join the bright circle of love,
We’re bound for the Kingdom above,
Come join the bright circle, the beautiful circle,
Come join the bright circle of love.

2 There’s sorrow and sadness wherever you go,
Feet weary and worn with the way,
Then cheerily sing as you journey along,
Your song may help someone today. [Refrain]

3 A word or a smile, ‘tis but little to give,
For Jesus our Father above;
O lift up your lamps! let them gleam out afar,
Come join the bright circle of love. [Refrain]

Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
