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

Representative Text

1 Oh, the blessèd sunshine which the Lord hath giv’n;
’Tis the Father’s blessing coming down from Heav’n.
He who in His goodness, sunshine doth bestow,
Gives a glimpse of glory to the world below.

Refrain:
Blessèd, blessèd sunshine from the realms of light;
Scattering gloom and shadow of the darkest night.
He who in His goodness sunshine doth bestow,
Gives a glimpse of glory to the world below.

2 Oh, the blessèd sunshine drives the clouds away;
Changes gloom and sadness to a brighter day;
And His radiant splendor passes no one by;
Sheds on all a blessing from the throne on high. [Refrain]

3 Oh, the blessèd sunshine of the Savior’s love;
’Tis the glorious sunshine from the home above;
Cheering us and guiding in the righteous way;
Leading up to Heaven, to the perfect day. [Refrain]
