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.

Representative Text

1 There’s sunshine in my Savior’s love,
I feel it more each day,
And brighter than the sun above,
It makes my homeward way.

Bright, beautiful sunshine,
Warm from the heart above;
Beautiful sunshine, sunshine,
Sunshine of Jesus’ love.

2 It shines upon me and within,
And keeps me pure and sweet.
It shows to me the snares of sin,
And guides my wayward feet. [Refrain]

3 It drives the shadows from my soul
And keeps my burden light,
And when the tempter would control
It gives me strength to fight. [Refrain]

4 It cheers my spirit on and on
Towards the resting place,
And thus ‘twill cheer till life is done
And I behold his face. [Refrain]
