Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 Oh, this world has much of sorrow
That we all might help allay,
We could charm away the sadness
If we would but watch and pray;
We should do our best to lighten
All the burdens others bear,
And by simple, kindly action
Lift their heavy load of care.

Yes ‘tis thought for one another
That makes life so sweet to live,
Just to show a loving spirit
And be ready to forgive;
When we meet a hungry heart
Let us hasten to impart
Christ’s own spirit, showing others how to live.

2 Faith and hope may be sweet graces,
But in love we’re very sure
Will be found life’s highest pleasure,
And it always will endure;
So when days are dark and dreary
We will find some sin-sick heart,
And do all we can to lighten
His dark pathways ere we part. [Refrain]

3 So ‘tis loving and forgiving
Makes life’s darkest pathway light
And will guide God’s fallen children
To the land where all is bright;
Love will answer love in gladness
And will brighten all our way,
As we travel on our pathway
To the land of perfect day. [Refrain]
