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

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, 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.

Full Text

1 When I do a kindness to someone,
My Father in heav’n must know;
For in my heart, the deepest part,
He kindles a happy glow.

Thank you, thank you,
I know He whispers low;
For down within this heart of mine
He kindles His thank-you glow.

2 The glow lights the pathway to guide me,
And self unto me makes known;
I cannot know His thank-you glow
While living for self alone. [Refrain]

3 When He fills my life with His blessings,
With praises my heart o’erflows;
Oh, love of mine, in the Heart Divine,
Go kindle my thank-you glow. [Refrain]
