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 What gladness comes with shades of night
When we have tried to do the right!
It makes our pathway fair and bright
To ever do the right!

Refrain:
Do the right—do the right!
For God is on the side of right!
Do the right—do the right!
For God is on the side of right!

2 The tempter ever seeks to win
Our footsteps to the paths of sin;
But all are safe from Satan’s might
Who seek to do the right! [Refrain]

3 Each battle won against the wrong,
Will make us for the next more strong;
O life shall grow more fair and bright
To all who do the right! [Refrain]
