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’s a word of cheer and kindness,
You may speak perchance today;
Burdened hearts ‘twill help to brighten,
Bringing joy along the way;
For the world has need of sunshine,
Need of friendship strong and true;
There’s a word of cheer and kindness,
None can speak that word but you;
There’s a word of cheer and kindness,
None can speak that word but you.

2 There’s a word of cheer and kindness,
It will help another on;
Giving courage for a conquest,
That a vict’ry may be won;
Bringing hlpe to one discourages,
Failing strength it may renew;
There’s a word of cheer and kindness,
None can speak that word but you;
There’s a word of cheer and kindness,
None can speak that word but you.

3 There’s a deed of loving service,
That will bless another’s life;
Bringing sunshine ‘mid the shadows,
Bringing courage for the strife;
Do not pause, for hours are flying,
And the days are all too few;
There’s a deed of loving service,
None can do that deed but you;
There’s a deed of loving service,
None can do that deed but you.
