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

63. The Heavenly Crown

1 Gracious Saviour, can it be
There awaits a crown for me,
Set with gems so pure, so bright,
Sparkling each with heav’nly light?

Yes, oh, yes, if you believe,
Jesus has a crown to give;
Yes, oh, yes, if you believe,
Jesus has a crown to give.

2 Can it be a harp of gold,
Glitt’ring bright, these hands shall hold?
That this voice shall join the song,
Sung by angels round the throne? [Refrain]

3 Shall I pass the pearly gates?
Shall I walk the golden streets?
Shall I see the great white throne,
And behold the Lamb thereon? [Refrain]
