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

521. Who Will Shine as the Stars?

1 As the pure glowing sky on a clear summer day,
When sweet fragrance is filling the air,
Shall the wise brightly shine in that land far away
As the firmament cloudless and fair.

Refrain:
They shall shine as the stars,
In that land of delight over there;
In that home of the blest,
Where no foe can molest,
Let me fly to my rest over there.

2 They that turn many souls unto righteousness here,
Who are toiling by day and by night,
Soon will shine as the stars evermore over there,
And shall reap their reward with delight. [Refrain]

3 As we part here on earth with our loved ones at home,
Weeping eyes, aching hearts, though we leave,
For the Master we’ll work ere the long night shall come,
Then a crown from His hand we’ll receive. [Refrain]
