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 this world, where shadows
Dark and drear abound,
Where the tears of sorrow
Plentiful are found,
Let us prove our union
With the Christ above,
By the joy of showing
Bright sunshine of love.

Sunshine, sunshine,
coming from above,
Keep it beaming ever,
Bright sunshine of love.

2 Souls in darkness groping,
Seeking for the way,
Leading up to glory,
Realm of endless day;
Comfort, cheer and help them,
Doubt and fear remove,
Making plain the pathway
With sunshine of love. [Refrain]

3 Soon will end the work-time,
And the pain and strife,
Then we'll rest together
Blest with peace and life;
With our loving Saviour
Now enthroned above,
Basking then forever
In sunshine of love. [Refrain]
