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 O heart of grief look up, trust on,
The Savior knows thy pain;
The heavy clouds will soon be gone,
The sun will shine again.

The sun will shine again dear heart,
The sun will shine again;
Just look above and trust His love,
The sun will shine again.

2 O burdened one, a friend is near,
Whose help you may obtain;
Just whisper “Jesus” He will hear,
The sun will shine again. [Refrain]

3 Poor captive, longing to be free,
You shall not plead in vain,
Your fetters all shall broken be,
The sun will shine again. [Refrain]

4 As morning follows midnight drear,
As sunshine follows rain,
Joy follows grief and pain and fear,
The sun will shine again. [Refrain]
