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 When Jesus lives within,
‘Tis summer in the heart;
‘Tis summer, summer, summer in the heart.
Life’s desert wastes rejoice,
Its winter glooms depart,
‘Tis summer, summer, summer in the heart.

Refrain:
‘Tis summer in the heart, summer in the heart;
When the Saviour enters all my woes depart;
‘Tis summer in the heart, summer in the heart;
When the Saviour enters, ‘tis summer in the heart.

2 Sweet flowers of the soul
To life and beauty start;
‘With summer, summer, summer in the heart.
Rich fruits of peace and love
A holy joy impart,
‘With summer, summer, summer in the heart. [Refrain]

3 When from the scenes of earth
My spirit fain must part,
‘With summer, summer, summer in the heart.
Blest visions from above
Their heav’nly light impart,
‘With summer, summer, summer in the heart. [Refrain]
