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.

1131. Heavenly Chorus

1 Listen to the heav’nly music
Made by those who never tire,
Wondrous song that has no ending,
Sung by all the angel choir.

Refrain:
They are singing, ever singing,
Over on the other shore;
Soon we’ll join them in the chorus,
When this fleeting life is o’er.

2 Soon we’ll join the choir of glory,
Soon we’ll greet those gone before;
Yes, we’ll meet departed loved ones,
Meet where parting is no more. [Refrain]

3 There we’ll sing, our sorrow over,
On that fair and happy shore,
Where the wicked cease from troubling,
And the weary sigh no more. [Refrain]
