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

644. Bright Anticipation

1 There’s a voice full of sweetness and love,
It is speaking so kindly to me:
“I will lead you to bright realms above,
Where the spirit forever is free.”

Refrain:
I am waiting, I am longing for the summons to come,
When from sorrow and trouble I’m free;
When with Jesus I am reigning in that heavenly home,
Where forever its beauties I’ll see.

2 When I look o’er, the past I behold
How His wide arms of mercy held me;
Oh, His sweet love and peace are untold,
In His favor I’m happy and free. [Refrain]

3 There’s a sweet voice that calls o’er and o’er,
It is cheering my spirit today;
Since my treasure is on yonder shore,
I must gain it and live there for aye. [Refrain]

4 I forget all the things that are past,
I am looking to glories divine;
I shall reap my reward at the last,
For my Jesus, dear Savior, is mine. [Refrain]
