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

CLXXXIX. Heaven invisible and Holy

1 Nor Eye has seen, nor Ear has heard,
Nor Sense nor Reason known,
What Joys the Father hath prepar'd
For those that Love the Son.

2 But the good Spirit of the Lord
Reveals A Heav'n to come:
The Beams of Glory in his Word
Allure and guide us home.

3 Pure are the Joys above the Sky,
And all the Region Peace;
No wanton Lips, nor envious Eye
Can see or taste the Bliss.

4 Those holy Gates for ever bar
Pollution, Sin, and Shame;
None shall obtain Admittance there,
But Foll'wers of the Lamb.

5 He keeps the Father's Book of Life,
There all their Names are found;
The Hypocrite in vain shall strive
To tread the heav'nly Ground.
