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


1. "Come up hither!" come away!
Thus the ransom'd spirits sing;
Here is cloudless, endless day,
Here is everlasting spring.

*"Come up hither," O, come away,
"Come up hither," the angels say;
"Come up hither," O come and see!
Heav'nly glories, how bright they be.

2. "Come up hither!" come and see
Heaven's glories yet untold;
Brighter than the sun they be,
Richer than the purest gold.

3. "Come up hither!" come and dwell
With the living hosts above;
Come, and let your bosoms swell
With the burning songs of love.--Cho.

4. "Come up hither!" come and share
In the sacred joys that rise"
Like an ocean everywhere,
Through the myriads of the skies.

5. "Come up hither!" come and shine
In the robes of spotless white;
Palms, and harps, and crowns are thine,
Hither! hither wing your flight.

6. "Come up hither!" hither speed!
Rest is found in heav'n alone;
Here is all the wealth you need,
Come, and make that wealth your own.
