Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. 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 clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 Little sunbeams in their brightness
Wondrous stories oft repeat;
Little snowflakes in their whiteness
Clothe the hills and barren street;
Little rills of hope and beauty
Sweetly singing thro’ the dell,
Whisper both of love and duty,
And of future triumphs tell.

Refrain:
Little sunbeams are we,
Little sunbeams are we,
Little sunbeams, merry sunbeams,
Happy sunbeams are we.

2 Little sunbeams on the mountains
Melt away the winter’s snow;
Little raindrops swell the fountain,
And the streamlet’s gentle flow,
Little rills, the brooklets swelling,
Sing of gladness all the day,
And of wonders new seem telling,
As they hasten on their way. [Refrain]

3 Little sunbeams lift the curtain
Of the dark and cheerless night;
Little sunbeams, it is certain,
Help to make the world more bright.
Little sunbeams never weary
Noblest service to perform;
Tho’ the earth grows dark and dreary,
And they face the howling storm. [Refrain]

4 Little sunbeams bring the showers
And the spring-time’s early bloom,
Little sunbeams paint the flowers
And dispel earth’s deepest gloom;
Little children, if they ever
Like the sunbeams do their part,
May by ev’ry true endeavor
Lift some burden from the heart. [Refrain]
