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

Representative Text

1. The cares of the day oft perplex us,
The pathway we tread oft seems bare;
The sun seems to shine but for others,
There seems to be no one to care;
But someone is watching our footsteps,
He’s guiding us o’er the dark way;
His love, like the glorious sunshine,
Will drive all the shadows away.

2. That life which the sun never brightened,
With misery and pain everywhere,
May reach out in faith and may find Him
Who waits every sorrow to share.
He holds out His hands pierced and wounded,
He knows of the burden each day;
He’ll take all the thorns from our pathway,
And drive all the shadows away.

3. There’s no one can help us like Jesus,
No burden’s too heavy for Him;
He wants every life filled with sunshine;
With light that shall never grow dim.
And daily He’s watching our footsteps,
And leading us all the lone way;
We’ll trust in His dear loving kindness,
To drive all the shadows away.
