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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 When the day is dreary, and your heart is sad,
Let the heav’nly sunlight in;
Look to Christ your Savior, He will make you glad;
Let the heav’nly sunlight in.

Refrain:
Let the heav’nly sunlight in,
Let the heav’nly sunlight in;
Be a living light for Jesus day and night,
Let the heav’nly sunlight in.

2 When your doubts distress you and your fears arise,
Let the heav’nly sunlight in;
It will drive the storm-clouds quickly from your skies;
Let the heav’nly sunlight in. [Refrain]

3 When the conflict rages and you almost fail,
Let the heav’nly sunlight in;
Ne’er give o’er the battle, you shall yet prevail;
Let the heav’nly sunlight in. [Refrain]

4 When your day is waning and your work is done,
Let the heav’nly sunlight in;
It will guide you safely home to Christ the Son;
Let the heav’nly sunlight in. [Refrain]
