During our last fund drive a donor said this: "Covid-19 rules prevent us from singing during my husband's burial service, so we will play the tune while we read the printed words or hum along with the music." Needless to say, this testimony struck us and stuck with us. We never know on any given day how Hymnary.org will be a blessing to people, but we know that around the world, the site is making a powerful difference in the lives of many.

Thanks to all who use Hymnary.org and all who support it with gifts of time, talent and treasure. If you feel moved to support our work today with a gift of any amount and a word of encouragement, we would be grateful.

To donate online, please use the Calvin University secure giving site. If you'd like to make a gift by check, please send it to: Hymnary.org, Calvin University, 3201 Burton Street SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

What though my joys and comfort die?
The Lord my savior liveth.
What though the darkness gather round?
Songs in the night he giveth.

1 Scatter the sunbeams, send forth the light;
Drive back the shadows of sorrow’s dark night;
Show to the cheerless Jesus, the Way;
Point to the regions of heavenly day.

Refrain:
Scatter the sunbeams, the bright golden sunbeams,
Scatter the sunbeams, the sunbeams of love;
Scatter the sunbeams, the bright golden sunbeams,
Scatter the sunbeams, the sunbeams of love.

2 Scatter the sunbeams, cheer with thy smile;
Bless other souls by a heart without guile;
Strive by kind actions wand’rers to win
Back from the bypaths of error and sin. [Refrain]

3 Scatter the sunbeams! hope beameth bright;
Bathed in her forehead with radiant light;
Shed forth that brightness where’er you go,
Blessing and blessed your life’s journey thro’. [Refrain]
