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.
Harry Plantinga

1 Look for the sunbeams,
That gladden the way,
Sing though the storm-cloud
May darken the day.
Above them still shineth
The beautiful light,
The darkness dispelling,
As dawn follows night.

Refrain:
Look for the sunbeams,
That gladden the way,
Sing though the storm-cloud
May darken the day.
Look for the sunbeams,
That gladden the way,
Sing though the storm-cloud
May darken the day.

2 Look for the sunbeams,
Be sure they will shine,
Thro’ the dark shadows,
To bless thee and thine.
In seasons of sorrow
Look up and be glad,
God’s love-light is shining,
Thou canst not be sad. [Refrain]

3 Look for the sunbeams,
The rift in the cloud,
Somewhere ‘tis gleaming,
And sing thou aloud.
Above thee thy Father,
Keeps watch over thee,
Unfailing forever,
Thy refuge is He. [Refrain]
