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

280. Beautiful Home

1 There’s a land of delight, where the angels dwell,
Beautiful home, beautiful home;
The joy that is waiting no tongue can tell,
Beautiful home above.

Refrain:
Beautiful home, beautiful home,
Sweet is my haven of rest;
Beautiful home, beautiful home,
Home of the pure and blest.

2 There’s a joy which eternally fills my heart,
Thinking of home, thinking of home;
It wakens the music in every part,
Thinking of Christ above. [Refrain]

3 There’s a peace like the flowing of ocean-tide,
Beautiful home, beautiful home;
Where purified saints with the Lord abide,
Beautiful home above. [Refrain]

4 There’s a crown with its jewels of sparkling light,
Beautiful home, beautiful home;
It is shining far brighter than stars of night,
Beautiful home above. [Refrain]
