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 There is gladness in my spirit, there is sunshine in my soul,
For I walk and talk with Jesus day by day;
And I love Him, dearly love Him, who redeemed and made me whole;
O ‘tis love that keeps me singing on my way.

O ‘tis love that keeps me singing,
Love of Jesus, true and strong,
Glorifies my sweetest song;
O ‘tis love that keeps me singing,
Keeps me singing on my way.

2 Like the birds that wake the woodlands with their melody of song,
Like the streamlet making music in its flow,
I will make the world the brighter as I pass my way along;
For ‘tis love that keeps me singing as I go. [Refrain]

3 If the heart is always happy with the love of Christ within,
Then the face will wreathe His praises in a smile;
I will do my duty gladly in this world of strife and sin,
And His love will keep me singing all the while. [Refrain]
