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 world is full of beauty,
When the heart is fill’d with love;
And clearer skies and brighter stars
Will greet us from above.
The sun sends out its golden beams
Much brighter in its shining,
And darkest clouds that o’er us spread,
Will have a silver lining.

Chorus:
The world is full of beauty,
When the heart is fill’d with love;
And clearer skies and brighter stars
Will greet us from above.

2 ‘Tis love that lifts the burden,
And ‘tis love that lights the way;
She sings her softest, sweetest notes
By night as well as day.
When gloomy shadows deep’ning fall,
Instead of sad repining,
Looks up and sees that darksome clouds
All have a silver lining. [Chorus]

3 Love cheers the sadder moments
Of our pilgrimage below;
And by its wand of magic pow’r
Our pathways brighter grow.
And precious is the thought, that when
Our latest sun’s declining,
No threat’ning cloud shall then be seen,
Without its silver lining. [Chorus]
