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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

631. The Last Hymn

1 “Shall my soul ascend with rapture
When the day of life is past;
While my house of clay shall slumber,
Shall I then with Jesus rest?”

Refrain:
“O my soul, press on to glory!
Worlds of bliss invite thee on,”
Evermore to be with Jesus,
When this walk on earth is done.

2 “Oh, shall my immortal spirit,”
Holden now by earthly ties,
Have at last unbounded freedom
In those realms beyond the skies? [Refrain]

3 Shall mine eyes indeed see Jesus,
He the humble Man of God,
Who laid down His life a ransom,
He who saves me by His blood? [Refrain]

4 Shall mine ears hear strains of music
From the glad and ransomed throng;
Shall I join with them in praises?
With them sing the glad, new song? [Refrain]

5 Shall my soul arise in triumph
When the angel calls for me;
Gladly go with Him to glory,
There to dwell eternally? [Refrain]
