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.

Representative Text

1. Scatter smiles and sunshine
In some gloomy place;
Fill each passing moment
With some kindly grace;
Many hearts are aching,
Many homes are sad:
With your smiles and sunshine
You can make them glad.

Scatter the blessed sunshine,
Scatter its light along;
It will cheer and brighten
As you pass it on;
Scatter the blessed sunshine,
Scatter its light along;
It will cheer and brighten
As you pass it on.

2. Loving words, when spoken,
Passing down the years,
Help to raise the fallen,
Check the dropping tears;
Little deeds of kindness,
Little words of love,
Lead the weary wand'rers
To the Lord above. [Chorus]

3. When the souls is hopeless
In the depths of sin,
Whisper words of kindness,
Let the sunshine in.
Brighten up the pathway
With a smile or song;
Help the fallen brother,
Pass the kindness on. [Chorus]
