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.
Harry Plantinga

48. Homeland of the Soul

1 A blessed thought comes to my soul,
Over in the heav’nly homeland,
We’ll dwell with Christ while ages roll;
Over in the heav’nly homeland.

Refrain:
Homeland, homeland of the soul,
Blessed home, heav’nly home,
Homeland, Homeland of the soul,
Over in the heav’nly homeland.

2 And there we’ll join the blood-washed throng,
Over in the heav’nly homeland;
To sing the glad Redemption song,
Over in the heav’nly homeland. [Refrain]

3 And when we cross the Jordan’s brink,
Over in the heav’nly homeland;
Oh, there we’ll find each broken link,
Over in the heav’nly homeland. [Refrain]

4 And when around our Father’s throne,
Over in the heav’nly homeland;
Then we shall know as we are known,
Over in the heav’nly homeland. [Refrain]

5 We’ll meet our friends who’ve gone before,
Over in the heav’nly homeland;
Yes, meet and greet to part no more,
Over in the heav’nly homeland. [Refrain]
