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

Full Text

1 Oh, the world has need of sunshine as you go,
For we often see the tears of sorrow flow;
You can haste that coming day,
When they’ll all be wiped away,
If you scatter blessed sunshine as you go.

Refrain:
You can scatter blessed sunshine as you go,
You can scatter blessed sunshine as you go;
Oh, so many hearts are sad,
You can help to make them glad,
If you scatter blessed sunshine as you go.

2 You can labor for the Master as you go,
Plant the precious seed and he will bid it grow;
Toiling on, whate’er betide,
With the Saviour by your side,
You can scatter blessed sunshine as you go. [Refrain]

3 You will meet with many trials as you go,
There will be some self-denials here below;
But keep looking still above,
And remember God is love,
While you scatter blessed sunshine as you go. [Refrain]
