We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

So, please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? 

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do. 

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. 

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1. Trusting Jesus, wonderful guide,
In His keeping safely abide;
Joys eternal He will impart;
Get God’s sunshine into your heart.

Get God’s sunshine into your heart,
Get God’s sunshine into your heart,
It will cheer you all the day,
Drive the gloom of life away,
If you get God’s sunshine into your heart.

2. Wondrous promise He will fulfill,
Gladly doing His holy will;
Peace unending He will impart,
Get God’s sunshine into your heart.[Refrain]

3. Friend of sinners, ever the same,
Willing Savior, praise His dear name,
Full forgiveness He will impart,
Get God’s sunshine into your heart. [Refrain]

After attending a revival meeting by Reuben Torrey and Charles M. Alexander, Harkness became Alexander’s pianist. He came to Christ shortly thereafter (on a bicycle, he said), and made several round the world tours with Torrey and Alexander. Harkness was especially well known for his program The Music of the Cross, and as the author of correspondence courses in hymn playing. He wrote over 2,000 hymns and Gospel songs in his lifetime.
