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 Keep on singing, sweetly singing,
Sing in sorrow’s darkest night;
Keep on singing till the morning
Comes with floods of golden light.

Keep on singing, however dark the day;
Music ringing will bring a brighter ray;
Keep on singing and sadness will not stay;
Keep on singing, work and pray.

2 Keep on singing, sweetly singing,
Let the echoes sweep along;
For thy words may reach some other,
Who shall need a cheering song. [Refrain]

3 Keep on singing, gladly singing,
Whatsoe’er thy lot may be;
Strive to banish care and sadness
With thy song’s sweet melody. [Refrain]

4 Keep on singing, bravely singing,
Tho’ defeated, weary, sad;
Joy ‘twill bring to those who listen,
It will make thine own heart glad. [Refrain]
