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,

202. A Crown Over There

1 Shall I wear that bright crown God has offered to me,
When my life shall have come to a close?
Oh, how happy I’ll be when my spirit is free,
Over there in such blissful repose.

Refrain:
Yes, I will wear a crown over there, over there,
Yes, I will wear a crown over there;
When my toiling is o’er I shall rest evermore,
In that home He has gone to prepare.

2 Shall I trust Him alway? Yes, the promise is mine,
“Be thou faithful, my child, unto death,
And I’ll give thee a crown which forever shall shine,
Endless life at thy last, fleeting breath.” [Refrain]

3 Let my anchor be grounded so deep in the Rock,
Till the storms of this life all are past,
That I’ll firmly endure on the promise secure,
Till He brings me to glory at last. [Refrain]
