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,
Harry Plantinga

1117. We Will Meet

1 Farewell, dear friends, a long farewell,
Since we shall meet no more,
Till we shall rise with thee to dwell
On heaven’s blissful shore.

Refrain:
We will meet you in the morning,
Where the shadows pass away;
We will meet, we will meet,
We will meet over there;
We will meet you in the morning,
Where all tears are wiped away.

2 Our friend and sister, lo! is dead,
Her cold and lifeless clay
Has made in dust its silent bed,
And there it must decay. [Refrain]

3 But is she dead? No, no, she lives;
Her happy spirit flies
To heav’n above and there receives
Her long-expected prize. [Refrain]

4 In robes of pure and precious love
Her virgin soul is dressed,
And all the angel hosts above
Rejoice to see her blest. [Refrain]

5 Farewell, dear friends, again farewell;
Soon we shall rise to thee,
On wings of love with Christ to dwell,
Through all eternity. [Refrain]
