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.

1. Just a little sunshine everywhere we go,
Over darkened pathways, rays of blessing throw;
Golden rays of gladness from a loving heart
Help the world to brighten; let us do our part.

Refrain
Sunshine, sunshine, just a little sunshine,
Bearing heav’nly gladness through this world below;
Sunshine, sunshine, just a little sunshine,
Telling love’s sweet story, everywhere we go.

2. Like the blessèd Master, in this life are we
Sent to comfort others, publish liberty;
Willing hands outreaching, strengthening the weak,
In the name of Jesus, consolation speak. [Refrain]

3. Just a little sunshine makes the roses grow;
In the barren places, flowers begin to show;
Lift the clouds of sorrow, cheer the hour of gloom,
Fruits of grace will ripen for immortal bloom. [Refrain]
