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 Happy are the people whose trust is in the Lord,
Walking with the Saviour, resting on his word;
Trusting in his promise tho’ dark may be the way,
Jesus dwelling in the heart
Makes sunshine every day.

Refrain:
Sunshine every day,
Sunshine all the way,
Jesus dwelling in the heart
Makes sunshine every day.

2 Walking with the Master we find our sweetest joy,
Working for his kingdom, O what blest employ!
Follow in his footsteps along the narrow ay,—
Jesus dwelling in the heart
Makes sunshine every day. [Refrain]

3 All his ransomed children a victor’s crown shall wear,
He will guide us onward to the mansions fair;
Never will he leave us, his love shall light the way,
Jesus dwelling in the heart
Makes sunshine every day. [Refrain]
