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 Do the cares of life surround you on your way below,
As you journey homeward from day to day?
Lift your voice in songs of gladness as you onward go,
It will drive your sadness and gloom away.

Sing on, sing on, glad soul, sing on;
Keep the music ringing day by day;
Let songs of joy by year employ,
It will cheer you on your pilgrim way.

2 Is your faith inclined to waver? Does your courage fail
When the waves of trouble around you roll?
Matters not how great the trials that may here assail,
Keep the music ringing, ’twill cheer your soul. [Refrain]

3 Does the tempter seek to lead you into paths of wrong?
Do the snares of evil your way attend?
Let the Savior be your shield, His love your battle song,
And keep singing ever till life shall end. [Refrain]
