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

Though dark the path my feet may tread

Representative Text

1 Tho’ dark the path my feet may tread, it is but joy to know
There’ll be no shadows on the other side;
We should not fear the wildest storm, but sing as on we go,
There’ll be no shadows on the other side.

Refrain:
There’ll be no shadows, no shadows,
Jesus is the sunshine of that land so fair;
There’ll be no shadows, no shadows,
Pain and death can never enter there.

2 Life’s brightest day may have its clouds, but still our heart should sing,
There’ll be no shadows on the other side;
‘Twill not be long till cares are o’er and we are with the King;
There’ll be no shadows on the other side. [Refrain]

3 We’re marching homeward to a land where weary feet may rest;
There’ll be no shadows on the other side;
No pain or sorrow e’er can touch the regions of the blest;
There’ll be no shadows on the other side. [Refrain]
