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, 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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

499. No Night There

1 In the land of fadeless day
Lies the city foursquare;
It shall never pass away,
And there is no night there.

God shall wipe away all tears,
There’s no death, no pain, nor fears,
And they count not time by years,
For there is no night there.

2 All the gates of pearl are made,
In the city foursquare;
All the streets with gold are laid,
And there is no night there. [Refrain]

3 All the gates shall never close
To the city foursquare;
There life’s crystal river flows,
And there is no night there. [Refrain]

4 There they need no sunshine bright,
In that city foursquare;
For the Lamb is all the light,
And there is no night there. [Refrain]
