Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 Earth has its sunshine and shadow,
Its friendship, its sorrow, its thrall,
But sweet is the message from heaven,—
Jesus is joy over all.

Refrain:
Jesus is joy over all,
Jesus is joy over all;
He is a friend that will love to the end,
For Jesus is joy over all.

2 Burdens, so light in the morning,
Grow heavy as night-shadows fall;
There’s One who can always relieve us,—
Jesus is joy over all. [Refrain]

3 Springtime must fade into summer,
And summer must fade into fall,
But he has brought springtime forever,—
Jesus is joy over all. [Refrain]

4 Some day he’ll summon my spirit,
All weary, but waiting the call,
And then with the angels I’ll sing it,—
Jesus is joy over all. [Refrain]
