Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

1085. We Know Our Home Above

1 Life is not a mystic dream,
Bounded by a sullen stream,
Leaving all in doubt and fear, over there;
Nay, the light is shining clear,
From our home we love so dear, over there.

Refrain:
Oh, we know there’s a home,
High around our Father’s throne, oh, joyful home!
For the light is streaming down,
And we see our golden crown;
Soon the Lord will bid me come,
To our bright eternal home, over there.

2 Fools who doubt within the heart
Take a leap into the dark,
Knowing not our home above, over there;
But we taste and fully prove
A sweet paradise of love, over there. [Refrain]

3 Heaven’s seal within us proves,
When our earthly house dissolves,
There’s a house not made with hands, over there;
For our spirit ready stands
In the sweet and vernal lands, over there. [Refrain]

4 Oh, how blest to surely know,
As we journey here below,
We shall gain eternal rest over there,
Where no foe can e’er molest,
In the mansions of the blest, over there. [Refrain]
