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

Kind Words Can Never Die

Representative Text

1 Kind words can never die, cherished they’ll be
After the loving face no more we see;
Oft they have brought the tear,
When earth seemed cold and drear,
Oft have they brought good cheer to you and me.

Kind words can never die, never die, never die,
Kind words can never die, no, never die.

2 Kind words can never die, little they cost,
And o’er life’s troubled waves, when tempest tossed,
They will return to you
Earnest, sincere and true,
Rough billows they’ll subdue; they are not lost. [Refrain]

3 Kind words can never die; if we could know
What burdens others bear, what grief and woe;
How oft a cheering word
Would from our lips be heard;
Hearts would with love be stirr’d where’er we go. [Refrain]
