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 Just a ray of sunshine
Breaking thro' the gloom,
Makes the earth rejoice again,
And the flow'rs to bloom:
Makes the earth rejoice again
And makes the flow'rs to bloom.

2 Just a little kindness,
Bright and sunny smile,
Makes the sad heart sing again,
All its cares beguile,
Makes the sad heart sing again
And all its cares beguile.

3 Words and smiles so kindly
Like the sunshine fall,
Let your presence ever be
Blessings unto all;
Let your presence ever be
Rich blessings unto all.
