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

The sunlit hills

Full Text

1 O the way of life is rugged, and my feet are bruised and torn,
And my heart is often crushed beneath the burden of life’s ills;
But I’ll find a sweet deliv’rance on that bright, supernal morn,
When I leave this misty valley, and climb the sunlit hills.

Refrain:
When I leave this misty valley, when I leave this house of clay,
O my soul is filled with glory, and my heart with rapture thrills
As I think of that bright moment, when shall dawn th’eternal day,
When I leave this misty valley, and climb the sunlit hills.

2 “Let the world despise and leave me, they have left my Savior, too,”
They have spurned His blessed counsel, with their stubborn hearts and wills;
But I’ll bear the cross for Jesus, I will love and serve Him, too,
Till I leave this misty valley, and climb the sunlit hills. [Refrain]

3 Though I know not what awaits me, if the way be dark or light,
This I know, that all His promises in me my Lord fulfills;
And I know that He’ll be with me in the thickest of the fight,
Till I leave this misty valley, and climb the sunlit hills. [Refrain]
