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.

Representative Text

1 Let the sunshine of joy get into your life—
There are shadows enough at best;
But the day is less long when ‘tis cheered with a song,
And the singer is always blest.

Sunshine, sunshine,
Bringing blessings from above;
Blessings, blessings,
And the greatest of these is love.

2 Let the sunshine of love get into your heart,
And the bitter will be made sweet;
Lift some burden of care which another must bear,
Smooth some pathway for weary feet. [Refrain]

3 Let the sunshine of grace get into your speech,
Say some helpful and kindly word
As you pass on your way: ‘tis so easy to say,
Yet how precious to those who’ve heard! [Refrain]

4 Let the sunshine of peace abide in your soul,
Whatever the outward strife;
‘Twill illumine their way to the realm of the day,
Then shine on thro’ an endless life. [Refrain]
