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 Sunshine falls about me, flowers strew my way,
In my heart is music all the day;
Burdens cease to weary, sorrows melt away:
God is very good to me.

God, the Lord, is good to me,
Gentle, kind and true to me;
Strews my path with sunbeams, fills my heart with joy;
O, He is so good to me.

2 Summertime has come forever in my soul
Since I gave my Saviour all control;
O, how light my heart is since He made me whole:
He is good, so good to me. [Refrain]

3 Daily He bestows on me amazing grace,
Daily lets me feel His kind embrace;
And, upon the morrow, I shall see His face:
O, He is so good to me. [Refrain]
