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

Cloud or Sunshine

Representative Text

1 Ev'ry sky that glistens with the golden day,
Has its cloud of sorrow drifting o'er the way;
If we are the sunshine, clouds will quickly flee,
And the souls that meet us will be light and free.

Chorus:
Are you cloud or sunshine in the world today?
Are you spreading darkness, or a golden ray?
Has some heart been darkened by hour cloud of sin?
Have you been the sunshine, helping others win?

2 Sunshine would be brighter for us day by day,
If the clouds of darkness all were swept away;
Why not be the sunlight, filling hearts with cheer,
Driving far away the sorrow met with here. [Chorus]

3 There are souls in darkness, longing for the light;
We who are God's children should be shining bright;
There are hearts all shadowed o'er by sin and shame,
Waiting for a sunbeam given in His name. [Chorus]

4 Let us then look upward for a golden gleam
Out of Heaven's sunlight till our faces beam;
Then with hearts of kindness let us make, while here,
Lives of others brighter with our sunshine cheer. [Chorus]
