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

84. The Streets of Gold

1 The cares of my life are many,
The griefs of my heart untold,
But God holds before me ever
My home by the streets of gold.

Refrain:
O fairest vision to behold,
That city with its streets of gold,
It cheers and helps me in my toiling—
That vision of the streets of gold.

2 The foes of my heart I conquer,
For God makes me strong and bold;
Revealing, each day, more clearly,
Yon city with streets of gold. [Refrain]

3 Earth’s beauty, at best, is fading,
Earth’s treasures I cannot hold;
Praise God, O my soul, He gives me
A home by the streets of gold. [Refrain]
