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 In the paths of life from day to day,
You can make fair blossoms spring,
By the kindly deeds along the way,
In the service of the King.

Just a word, a word of happiness and cheer,
Just a word, glad hope to bring;
O the kindly deeds that we may do while here,
In the service of the King.

2 We can lift a weary load of care,
By a cheerful kindly word;
And the joy divine with others share,
As we point them to our Lord. [Refrain]

3 We can brighten skies so dull and drear,
We can whisper hope divine;
We can lead for Christ, the Helper near,
As for Him we seek to shine. [Refrain]
