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 Has a kindly tho’t been yours,
Pass it on;
Others joy thro’ it secures,
Pass it on;
Many hearts in loneliness,
Long for sympathy’s caress,
Hearts that kindly tho’ts may bless,
Pass it on.

Pass it on, this kindly thought,
Pass it on to other hearts;
Other sorrows it may feel,
Other wounded hearts may heal.

2 Have you had a loving word,
Pass it on;
‘Twas but spoken for your good,
Pass it on;
Other sorrows it may feel,
Other wounded hearts may heal,
Other vows to Christ reveal,
Pass it on. [Refrain]

3 If you have a kindness shown,
Pass it on;
‘Twas not giv’n for you alone,
Pass it on;
Let it travel down the years,
Let it wipe another’s tears,
Till in heaven the deed appears,
Pass it on. [Refrain]
