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

If we scatter sunbeams

Representative Text

1. If we scatter sunbeams
All the sunny day,
It will cheer some trav'ler
On his weary way;
Brighten life's sad pathway
For the weary one,
Cheer him with the sunbeams,
'Till the day is done.

Oh, the blessed sunbeams,
Shining all the day;
Guide the weary wand'rer,
To the heavenly way.

2. Let us not be weary,
Singing all the day,
Shedding blessed sunbeams
All along our way.
Make earth's sorrow brighter
By our happy song,
Bear our trials lightly,
It will not be long. [Chorus]

3. When we reach the portals
And the Saviour's near,
We shall reap the sunbeams
We have scattered here.
We'll go on rejoicing,
Happy all the day,
For the blessed sunshine
Scatters gloom away. [Chorus]
