Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 There are those we must encourage,
Who are struggling and trying to win;
For we know not their temptations,
Nor the fight they are waging with sin.

Scatter deeds of kindness and love,
It will brighten the pathways above;
Scatter deeds of love along the way
That leads to everlasting day.

2 Is thy brother faint and weary?
Go and help him his burden to bear!
Has he wandered from the pathway?
Go and lead him to Jesus in prayer! [Refrain]

3 Here a loving word of comfort,
There an action of mercy and love;
Scatter sunshine all around you,
And the Lord will reward you above. [Refrain]
