Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.

174. We Shall Know Each Other There

1 Know each other, blessed comfort!
When this mortal life is o'er,
We shall know our friends departed,
Kindred spirits gone before.
In our holy thrill of transport
They will be the first to share;
First to bid us kindly welcome;

We shall know, yes, know each other there,
We shall know, yes, know each other there;
We shall meet beside the crystal river,
We shall know each other there.

2 Know each other? who will question
Truth so grateful to the heart,
When its chords are torn and bleeding,
When its earthly hopes depart?
Christian love, how pure and sacred!
Who, the parting scene could bear,
Did not mercy whisper gently,
We shall know each other there? [Refrain]

3 Sweet the moments when we gather
In the house of God to pray;
Precious tears are those we mingle;
How they cheer us on our way!
Thro’ the glass of faith directed
To our Father’s mansion fair,
Comes the golden light of promise,
We shall know each other there! [Refrain]
