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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

92. Parted Hands Shall Clasp Again

1 We have heard such blessed news,
Of a land from sorrow free,
Where the Savior’s loved and own
Dwell with Him eternally.
O’er that country bright and fair,
There shall come no shade of sin,
And beyond its border land,
Parted hands shall clasp again.

Refrain:
Parted hands shall clasp again,
In that land where is no sin,
There the Savior calls His own,
And beside the great white throne,
Parted hands shall clasp again.

2 Here we see the falling tear,
Here we hear the parting knell,
But we know in that blest land,
We shall never say farewell.
Here our loved ones bid goodby
As to rest they enter in,
But when all with Jesus stand,
Parted hands shall clasp again. [Refrain]

3 O how blessed it will be,
When our loved ones there we meet;
What a day of wondrous joy,
When we there each other greet.
Though we see our loved ones go,
Yet thro’ Christ a crown they win,
And some day ‘twill not be long,
Parted hands shall clasp again. [Refrain]
