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

118. Beautiful

1 Beautiful robes of white,
Beautiful land of light,
Beautiful home so bright,
Where there shall come no night;
Beautiful crown I’ll wear,
Shining with stars o’er there,
Yonder in mansions fair,
Gather us there.

Refrain:
Beautiful robes, beautiful land,
Beautiful home, beautiful band,
Beautiful crown, shining so fair,
Beautiful mansion bright,
Gather us there.

2 Beautiful thought to me,
We shall forever be
Thine in eternity,
When from this world we’re free;
Free from its toil and care,
Heavenly joys to share,
Let me cross over there;
This is my pray’r. [Refrain]

3 Beautiful things on high,
Over in yonder sky,
Thus I shall leave this shore,
Counting my treasures o’er;
Where we shall never die,
Carry me by and by,
Never to sorrow more,
Heavenly store. [Refrain]
