Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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. In the light that Jesus sheds on you,
Thro’ many blessings day by day,
You can be His servant kind and true,
By leaving smiles along your way.

Refrain
You can lighten someone’s burden,
You can brighten someone’s day;
You can drive the loneliness from someone’s heart,
Leaving smiles along the way.

2. Sorrows all about you, grief and pain,
And burdens that are hard to bear;
You can mix the sunshine with the rain,
By making lighter someone’s care. [Refrain]

3. Then in joy and gladness daily be
The Savior’s witness staunch and true;
Showing unto others how ’twas He
Who shed His smiling love on you.[Refrain]
