Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full 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]
