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.

Representative Text

1 In the sunshine of his love, O how precious 'tis to be!
Standing where each blessed sunbeam sheds its glory over me.
It gives me perfect peace, and my heart is all aglow
While I praise the gracious Giver for the light he doth bestow.

In the sunshine of his love, blessed sunshine of his love,
I am walking, daily walking, in the sunshine of his love.

2 In the sunshine of his love, what a privilege to know
While I keep where it is shining, from his care I cannot go!
Tho' temptation may assail, and danger hover near,
In the sunshine of his presence I shall know no doubt or fear. [Chorus]

3 In the sunshine of his love, may I ever here abide;
With such radiance all around me nothing evil can betide.
All along my pilgrim way in its fullness may it shine,
Its heavenly light revealing all his purposes divine. [Chorus]
