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.
Harry Plantinga

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]
