We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

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]
