During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

161. Just Over Yonder

1. There's a better world than this,
Just over yonder;
Just beyond the dark abyss,
Just over yonder.
There are fields of living green,
There decay no more is seen;
Skies unclouded, all serene,
Just over yonder.

2. There is hope for the opprest,
Just over yonder;
There is joy for the distrest,
Just over yonder.
Grief shall there be felt no more,
Days of weeping all are o'er;
Shadowless immortal shore,
Just over yonder.

3. We shall meet the loved ones gone,
Just over yonder;
There sweet faces look upon,
Just over yonder.
We shall greet them as of yore,
They will love us as before;
We shall part from them no more,
Just over yonder.

4. But most wondrous! I shall see,
Just over yonder,
Him who gave His life for me,
Just over yonder.
Bleeding then on Calvary;
Interceding now for me;
Blessed hope, with Christ to be,
Just over yonder.
