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,

444. A Child's Song of Heaven

Refrain:
I want to go to Heaven, that Home so bright and fair;
So beautiful, and—best of all—Dear Jesus will be there!

1 I want to see the city away beyond the sky,
With pearly gates and walls of shining stones so great and high;
Beside the crystal river there is a fruitful tree;
And, oh, I want to see the mansions made for you and me! [Refrain]

2 I never will get hurt there, I’ll never have to cry;
No pain or sickness there in Heav’n, and none will ever die;
There Satan cannot tempt me to even once be bad,
For sin can never enter Heav’n—I’ll be so safe, so glad! [Refrain]

3 I’ll see old Noah, Moses, Elijah, Daniel, Paul,
And all the millions since that time who gave to God their all;
The many little children who’ve died before they’re old
Are singing ’round the throne of God, and play on streets of gold! [Refrain]

4 Oh, there I’ll be so happy with friends both old and young;
The lame and blind, now healed and well, praise God in endless song;
The angels too will join us; and dressed in spotless white,
We’ll not get tired of praising God, for there there is no night! [Refrain]
