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 just a word of gladness you can tell,
There is just a little sadness to dispel;
There are weary feet to strengthen,
There are drooping hearts to cheer;
There are sunny hours to lengthen,
Rocky roads to clear.

Then sing a song of gladness all the day,
And scatter sunny smiles along your way;
Catch the sunbeams as they fly
From the hours that hurry by,
Oh, sing a song of gladness all the way.

2 There is nothing quite so cheering as a smile!
Surely let us not go fearing all the while,
There’ll be many a gloomy shadow
You must lighten as you go,
For in sunshine there is power
You must help bestow. [Refrain]

3 You’ll find happiness abounding ev’rywhere!
If you only look around you, it is there!
There are burdens you must lighten;
All your happiness employ;
There are broken hearts to brighten
With your song of joy. [Refrain]
