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

Fill your life with sunshine

Representative Text

1 Fill your life with sunshine from those cloudless skies,
Where the never-fading lights in splendor rise;
Fill it with the rays that burn for faith’s clear eyes,
Fill your life with sunshine from above.

Fill your life with sunshine!
Blessed heav’nly sunshine!
Fill your life with sunshine from above!
Fill it with the glory of redeeming love,
Fill your life with sunshine from above.

2 Open wide your heart and let his light shine in,
Driving out all hidden wrong and secret sin;
Let the healing presence now its work begin,
Fill your life with sunshine from above. [Refrain]

3 Let His blessed sunshine on your pathway shine
Turn the eyes of others to the source divine;
Say to all, “that light will gladden thee and thine,
Fill your life with sunshine from above.” [Refrain]
