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 Come out into the sunlight,
Out from the gloomy dell;
Why clothe the heart in sadness?
‘Tis with the righteous well!

‘Tis well, ‘tis will,
‘Tis with the righteous well!
‘Tis well, ‘tis well,
‘Tis with the righteous well!

2 Ye timid, doubting servants,
No more your sorrows tell;
Cheer up! give God the glory,
‘Tis with the righteous well! [Chorus]

3 He giveth songs of triumph,
Why sound the solemn knell?
Thy face should glow with gladness,
‘Tis with the righteous well! [Chorus]

4 If heirs to heav’nly mansions,
Where ye with Christ shall dwell;
Thine is the blest assurance,
‘Tis with the righteous well! [Chorus]
