We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

So, please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? 

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

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. 

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below.

Like radiant sunshine that comes after rain

Representative Text

1 Like radiant sunshine that comes after rain,
Like beautiful rest after sorrow and pain,
like hope that is kindled returning again,
Is the wonderful peace of my Saviour.

Wonderful peace, beautiful peace,
Wonderful peace of my Saviour;
There’s nothing on earth can such gladness impart
As this wonderful peace of my Saviour.

2 So soft and refreshing, as sweet as the dew,
A promise that cannot be broken to you;
A light that will shine all the long journey through,
Is the wonderful peace of my Saviour. [Refrain]

3 It brightens earth’s darkness and banishes care,
And helps you to carry the burdens you bear;
A refuge in trouble, your sorrows to share,
Is the wonderful peace of my Saviour. [Refrain]

4 A guardian in danger where evil is rife,
A mighty defender in conflict and strife,
A beautiful guide to that heavenly life,
Is the wonderful peace of my Saviour. [Refrain]
